Fall Decorating . . .

I got a few of my early fall quilts out the first of the month.  I thought I better blog about them before I get out the late fall quilts!

Route 44 is hanging in the living room.

I love this quilt.  The polka dot fabric, the fall colors, the pattern, the quilting, it's all good, and so me.  It makes me smile to have this quilt hanging again.  

Every now and then I get a note from someone who mentions that they don't have any quilts, they've given them all away.  I think everyone needs at least one quilt in the house that they've made, that they love, and that makes them smile.  I'm lucky, I have more than one, that's even better.

James River Blues is currently on my bed, on top of a cream coverlet that makes swapping out quilts and using smaller quilts a breeze.  No more king size quilts on my To Do list!

I was browsing Red Crinoline Quilts website and ran across this kit, 
James River Blues

in RED!

Don't you love it!
