I finished Lori's quilt along! This makes me sew happy. It may not be a very big quilt but I finished it just the same. Lately I just don't have the drive and that makes me sad. But this quilt is finished and that makes me happy!
I started with a practice middle from those scrappy pumpkins. Than I added all the borders. 
Now I have to say, I picked some dull fabrics. Even Hubby said "it looks a bit holly hobby ish". That's code for "70's". 
So with my next row of Half square triangles I tried to use fabrics with a bit more color. Still 70's. 
My brilliant plan was to quilt it with Thanksgiving sayings and then say " I meant for it to look this way".

Anyway I had fun and it was a quick, fun project. Thank you Lori for hosting this quilt along!

I had so much fun with these HSTs that I'm going to be doing more. I harassed my friend Jo about her tree of life pattern and I'm anxious to start it! It'll be another small quilt. Something for the holidays. At least that's the plan now. 

Have a wonderful day!
Take care, Brandie

I think it looks perfect for fall and nothing 70's about it!! Thanks for playing along, even if you were a tad behind. I'm still thrilled you did it!!

Lori said...

I hope you didn't mind I linked you up to my blog. That way when anyone goes back they can see your Faithful too!!

I love your middle block and the colors you picked! It's a darling quilt!

I really like these colors, and think of them as Autumnal. Woohoo such a fun word. And a finish, is a Finish!

That looks Thanksgiving/Fall to me, not 70's. :D Way to go!

Jo said...

Woohoo! Love your quilting too! So nice that Lori linked you to her blog to make 20 of us that finished her SAL. Looking forward to growing some trees :0) See you tomorrow!
