My Seasons Quilt has arrived home from France and will soon be made into a new Timeless Traditions Quilt Pattern.  It can be found in the Quilt Mania Special Editions, there is a Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter issue, with the pattern found over 4 the 4 issues.

Fall is my favorite season.  Our leaves are beginning to change, the days are getting shorter and the feeling is setting in....I'm starting to think about soups, pot roast and the like. With Fall comes more time, for me at least, for sewing and reading......my 2 favorite past times.  The apples are starting to arrive at the Farmers Market, and then I think of pork roast with homemade applesauce and of course every ones favorite....apple crisp.  I have a favorite recipe for that and it comes from a quilter's cookbook, so it's gotta be good, right?  I'll share it one of these days.

A thought for the day....."Happiness is like a butterfly which when pursued is always beyond our grasp, but if you will sit down quietly, it may alight upon you".   Nathaniel Hawthorne

  1. Love the quote and love the quilt! Fall is my favorite season as well having spent the first 43 years of my life in New England.

    1. Linda...there is nothing like New England in the Fall. I was fortunate to take a trip with a bus load of quilters there a couple of years ago. We saw the Jane Sickle quilt, and oh the colors were wonderful!

  2. Ooooooh Norma, LOVE this one!! i got my copy of summer quiltmania and i have it all glued and ready to applique....i cant find the spring quiltmania, i found out about this one too late! :(
