October ~~ Little Quilt

Fall is definitely here!  We're having much cooler weather and good soaking rains.  The leaves of the elm trees are turning yellow.  October's little quilt is a good example of all the beautiful colors of fall.  It was paper pieced on the machine and hand quilted.

The pattern is called "Wild Goose Chase", and was inspired by this big quilt in the book Quilts, Quilts, Quilts, by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes.

Teddy loves to wrap up in it and wait for the wild geese to come honking across the fall skies.  Actually, we don't hear many geese anymore just in the fall; we have them all year round on the ponds and in the pastures.  I miss hearing them fly over; it was always a sure sign that cold weather was right behind them.


  1. I love the beautiful mix of colors in this sweet little quilt. Teddy looks quite happy with the results!

  2. very scrappy colorful looking quilt - someone is going to love this one. Some of our trees are beginning to turn colors also.

  3. I'm glad that you are finally getting some rain, just wish it had been earlier in the year.

    Love those little flying geese! I do love scraps.

    Have a wonderful and Blessed day

  4. Love the cute little quilt. So cheery! We have the Sand Hill Cranes that fly in this time every year. I just heard them the other day as they flew over calling out to each other. I love that sound! Maybe your geese are just a little late this year.

  5. Yes, this colorful little quilt is just perfect for fall. I do love your scrappy ones. I might echo Ernestine on this one.

  6. Oooo, I love this it's so cute.. I love the pattern and Teddy sure loves it..Blessings, Susie

  7. Oh~ it is so pretty, Charlotte!!
