As the season turns from summer to autumn it is naturally a time that turns many to thinking of all that comes with "Fall". The turning of the leaves... the final garden harvests... the first freeze and frost on the pumpkins... and let's not forget the Pumpkin Spice! And many seem to like to focus on Halloween (like my customer who requested a Halloween quilt including all of the "spiderwebs and skeletons and bats and purples and greens, witches, oranges and blacks and then pumpkins are fine but more like spooky Halloween stuff."
All of the blocks have been pieced and are ready to be sewn together and get borders. Personally, I prefer the fall/harvest focus.
Harvest season brings an attitude of gratitude, which brings me to Thankful Thursday...
❤ I am happy to fulfill my customer's request and thankful that I finally have another quilt to make! I have had a slow time of custom anything (the last one was in May) and am ready to get back into the swing of things.
❤ I find that doing quilting for others has helped me as a quilter... I have been forced out of my comfort zone and have tried color combos and quilting designs and techniques that I wouldn't normally choose to do for myself. I can look back and see my growth... for this I am thankful! Growth is so important. It offers the chance to improve skills and figure out what you like and don't like... and it keeps you from becoming stale and stagnant and lethargic... much like the Dead Sea.
What are you thankful for?
Leaf me a comment... I'd love to hear from you! 🍂
