Fall Air

7:39 PM

It seems like "Change" is in the fall air for me this season.  I have made decisions lately about my life and I guess I am a whole couple months early because I have got all next year planned out.  I like to think of myself as a work in progress at all times.  There are always a lot of things to work on and tweak.  I decided that I am going to take a break from my Quilting Guild Board (not quilting guild just in case you don't know what that means).  I will miss seeing all the members an extra time each month.  It will be a good change for me though.  Also next year is going to include a lot more fun (by the way... what is that fun thing?)  I know I am a little out of practice.  This quilt market trip is the start of that promise to myself to have more fun and seize life again.  I remember that old me that use to do that.  I keep working with all my might to get her back, because I miss her.  

I will be honest that life is wearing me down.  I'm just getting tired.  It is old family members and acquaintances and circumstances and memories.  I am tired of thinking about negative people and giving them any part of me.  I LOVE my LIFE that I have built for myself.  I am so thankful for my children and Weston.  I am thankful for the person that I am.  It is hard being me sometimes.  Ask my best friends.  It feels good to get tears out every once in awhile because it is like getting rid of that bad energy people sluff onto ya.  

It seems like change is inevitable.  Thank goodness.  So I am going to take a breath of this fresh fall air ;)  And it is always good to have a plan.  

Fall Air (available in my pattern shop and Etsy):

All the patterns are getting checked off the list one by one.  As you can see I have established this new "skinny" series which really needed all four seasons to cement it together.  This is the third season Fall.  I actually have another whimsical fall... and summer.  But this is the Modern version of my fall. 


This table runner uses some really bold colors.  Why being boring right?


Also, the 72" x 72" quilt that matches this pattern is pretty much my favorite.  I have a really hard time picking between all of these new ones but this one is so fun right now for this season.  It is definitely speaking to me.


The fabrics that I have used are from Roots and Wings, Quarterfoil, and Penny Rose Shirtings.  I think they make a wonderful combination together.  They used all the fabric colors I picked for this fall skinny so that worked out!


I quilted this WHOLE quilt with my cowboy feather design.  It is pretty awesome.


Here is the True Blue Block.  This represents all the true friends that I have.  I love ya and thank ya for being there for me time and time again.  And to all the ones that came before and we have moved on to different points in our lives.  Thank you for being there for me!!  I love that.


So my favorite part is the stamp.  Don't ya love how it has acorns in it.  It made me so happy when I made it.  Also, I graffiti quilted on each side of the block which was pretty awesome to try.  I really really hope I come across this awesome book that inspired it.  I need that book.


Another element that I love about this quilt is the Delectable Mtn.  I made a quilt with this block in it a long time ago.  It was super fun.  I felt like it fit perfectly here edging the tree.


And pinecones. love.




I can't wait to snuggle this quilt to death once I get back from Market.
