Mother Nature


Autumn is its full glory at the moment. The days are glorious and sunny, the nights are cool and the colours are wonderful.....my colours!!:

The gorgeous oranges beginning to turn that wonderful brown!

The beautiful shades of green.....I love this lime green!!





















And how amazing are these reds and golds against the bright blue sky!!

















And the wonderful creams and beiges........a perfect Mother Nature palette.

These strong, warm colours are always my first choice for my own projects, as you can see from the latest DJ blocks added to my tally:

And also for the quilt top Anne Ida and I worked on while she was down here:

Gorgeous Autumn colours!! I just managed to get the final borders on today (I know Anne Ida has finished hers!!!) , so now its all ready to be quilted and will be perfect to snuggle under during these cool Autumn nights!!

Such beautiful photos! Autumn is my favorite time of year. We actually have a horse named Autumn! I love your DJ blocks! I just got the cd for that quilt yesterday, but I haven't started it yet. Right now I am working on the Civil War Diary quilt.

Such beautiful tree pictures - and that's my favorite color of sky blue! I too am especially fond of fall colors, and your quilt is beautiful. You certainly have been busy with so many DJ blocks as well. Good job! They look wonderful.
