Autumn at Prairie Point

It's beginning to feel like autumn at Prairie Point.  We have some beautiful fall fabrics and quilts on display.

Pumpkin Patch Throw from Farmhouse Threads can become a great autumn tradition in your home.  The quilt is 53" x 61"--if you want it larger just add a border.  This is a good quilt for an experienced beginner because it is the simple snowball block and nine-patch block.  Use your Folded Corner Clipper for the snowball block; the nine-patch forms a chain on the quilt in a variety of browns. The colors are rich in a nice combination of hues.  An apple, a book, and a pumpkin quilt--that's all I need on the front patio to enjoy the cool weather.  This one is a hit!  The pattern is included in our kits.

Welcome Fall by Deb Strain is fun but grown-up.  I love this color combination so much that I just wanted to mix them all together, and this is what I came up with.  The pattern uses 10" squares, or can be cut from whatever fabric you have in your stash.

Harvest Primo Plaids from Marcus Brothers are kitted up for a rag quilt.  There are so many other things you can make with them.  If you don't want a rag quilt, sew some squares together to make a warm, cozy throw.  All the Primo Plaids will make up nicely into jackets, shirts, scarves, and more.  Click HERE to download a pattern for the infinity scarf, and HERE for the poncho.

Autumn Elegance would make a gorgeous quilt, bit it is awesome for decorating as well.  Try a table runner, napkins, or placemats.

Oak Haven by Kansas Troubles is expected to be in the shop very soon.  Rich autumn hues are typical of Lynne Hagmeier.  

Don't forget the little ones...make a table runner, placemats, or pillowcases they will love with these cute groupings from Katie Hennagir for Andover Fabrics and by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman.

Blueberry Backroads' designer Sara Hardwig has some embroidery projects that can be made into pillows, small hangings, and towels.  Perfect handwork projects for cool evenings at home--better yet, in front of a toasty fire.  Sounds so inviting!

These buttons are just too cute and whimsical.  Forest critters, colorful leaves, even pumpkins--embellishments for any fun project.

Buttermilk Basin's "Give Thanks" pattern is a perfect, small project to help decorate your home for Thanksgiving.  Wool appliqué just seems to sing when paired with rich, vibrant fall colors.

"Pumpkins" wool embroidery project--a darling décor item for your home this season.

I'm having fun watching the mums show their beauty more and more every day.  And I can't pass up a chance to share my favorite Pumpkin Bread recipe.  Click HERE to view the PDF.
