This week the trees have become an artist’s masterpiece. Leaves in reds, yellows, oranges, and browns have painted the horizon as far as the eye can see. Fall is such a special time of the year. There is nothing like walking on a path, even if it is the sidewalk, and feeling the leaves crunch under foot. Quilt and fall festivals provide great inspiration for creativity…we are especially inspired by the beautiful colors and the spiced smells of the season. We encourage you to attend a quilt show or a fall festival so you can be equally inspired!

Tips Galore!

Use your Address Labels
We found a good use for extra address labels. Fold them down over the tops of your favorite catalog and magazine pages you want to go back to. This saves time when you’re ready to order from the catalog or look for a quilt that you want to make.

Do you have a great tip? Submit your tip to us so we can share it with everyone!

Winter Stars Americana
Submitted by Hettie Trout from Patriot, OH

I was looking through a friend's quilting magazines for an Americana theme pattern for my daughter. I was immediately drawn to Winter Stars featured in the November/December 2004 issue of Love of Quilting.

Wonky Bunko
Submitted by Linda Ikeda from El Cajon, CA

Two of my favorite things are Halloween and Bunko, so the Wonky Jacks blocks from the September/October 2004 issue of Love of Quilting were perfect for the pillows I made for my Bunko group.
