Crow's Autumn Frost Kit, Done!

I've been waiting for weeks for a new stash of Country Lore Designs patterns. They finally came in this week. I had some kits for the little Crow's Autumn Frost that I needed to make up and of course I thought that they would look great in the new Fall fabrics... so, I made a sample to see if it would look as good as I thought...and I really love it. the border is more golden yellow than beige but you know me, I can't take a good pic if my life depended on just imagine it to be golden yellow, LOL! I swear, it's yellow! I used the Haunted Hallow fabrics for the background, borders, backing and binding. I used Maywood Woolies and Buggy Barn Flannel Essentials for the applique. Oh, the pumpkin is flannel too from Benartex. It is so cute. OK,. so I did add some hand dyed buttons just because I love buttons! All in all , a good job at revamping this cutie... I think there are going to be some happy quilters making this one next week. Woo-HOO! What did you do this week???? Anything FUN? No, raking leaves and Fall cleanup does not qualify as fun....I mean crafty stuff...huhhhh???? Well, you still have the weekend if you haven't managed to fit anything in... better work fast~!

Hola Brenda, como estás?, que lindo que te quedó este quilt, me encanta el otoño, aunque en este país no tenemos, sólo tenemos dos estaciones, pero me acuerdo cuando estuve en USA que es una estación muy bonita, con el cambio de colores de las hojas..., desearía estar allá!, pero bueno, a mi también me gustan los botones y ese que le pusiste fue un gran detalle!, te quedan muyyyyyy lindos tus quilts :)!


Hi Brenda--lets see--i am working a fall crow wall hanging and these crows have the skinnies legs you ever seen and I an crazy enough to be doing them in needle turn applique--have 3 in--and am ready to do the 4th on---they are a challenge that is for sure--and I have been working hard on getting my Schnibbles pattern--Winter White hand quilted for that challenge by the first of the week--nearly done--so maybe i willl make it on time and I have done some projects for my Angel swap partner--so I have been stitching --thanks for asking--and I love the one you are showing--love sunflowers and crows for fall---hugs, just, Di

Love how that came out, great materials.
I just finished one with my design and the old maywood black with stars and moons for a border.

Have to quilt it tomorrow, then I can bind it off.
