Fall is in the Air

Fall is certainly in the air up here in Northern Illinois.  The temps have been much cooler... in fact too cool for my liking but you knew I was going to say that.  I know I sound like a broken record but surely someone will fix my broken record or buy me a new one if I complain about it enough!  This morning it was 47 degrees when the King left to go play golf.  It is suppose to warm up a little the next few days but I know it will be short lived.

In keeping with the fall spirit; actually it was coincidence, I'm working on the fall rows for the EQ7 Seasonal Row-A-Long.  This row is designed by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.  She is so talented and writes the best directions to make her patterns.  They are so easy so follow and are illustrated very well.  I like that!  Sometimes I have a habit of only looking at the pictures instead of reading the directions.  Sometimes that gets me into trouble and the Grim Ripper and I become BFF's too.  However, not with Lorna's patterns.  They are that good!

I made 2 corn blocks.  Ironic that it's corn harvest time here and it's soon happening in my back yard. I'm surrounded by corn fields on 3 sides of me.

I also made 2 adorable bushy tailed squirrels. 

And a big ole acorn.

Ta Da!  One cute fall row finished for the EQ7 Seasonal Row-A-Long Quilt.  

Next Tuesday begins another week of reveals for 4 more designers and their seasonal rows.  If you haven't joined or followed along, you will want to do so.  You can find the full schedule and details here at Seams To Be Sew.  Did I mention there are some fabulous prizes each week and some even greater prizes on the final week October 6th, when 4 of us reveal an entire quilt made with the rows of our choice.
