Being on vacation at home with my parents in New Hampshire gave me to opportunity to get pictures of the many quilts I have made in the past, but never really documented.  One of my favorites was this one.  It was started as a quilt to take with me to graduate school in Illinois, but when my parents moved from their last house into a little cabin in Raymond, I thought it belonged here.  So I finished it for Christmas for my mother in 2006.  Sadly my mother washes things CONSTANTLY, (she's a little OCD) so the quilt has faded a bit.  I wish I had pictures of it originally, but I'll take what I can get. 

I called it Autumn in New Hampshire, and was inspired to make it by the border fabric, which is a view of a lake at twilight in the autumn.  The silhouettes of the trees are in a deep purple, and the sky is ablaze in colors of red, orange, yellow, and pink.  The fabrics and border do not clash as the photo suggests.  The borders were pieced 4-square blocks.  Enjoy!

Oh, I wish you were my daughter. That is so pretty, and those colors are so 'comforting' is the only word I can come up with.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

This is really beautiful! I love the autumn colours, they're almost like little statburts of autumn sunshine.
