    Here's another of my fall quilts that I just brought out for the season. It was made of leftover strips, my Mom gave me the border fabric for my birthday that year. You'll see that I cut out a couple of motifs and raw edge appliqued them to the inner border to give more of an effect of the fields being at the edge of town. I fmq the blocks by starting in one corner and wiggly lining it all the way over to the other corner without one stop, took maybe 30-40 minutes to quilt the blocks, the border is outlined quilted around the motifs.

    Very pretty quilt. I have that same fabric as your border & piecing in the back. It's perfect for the fall.

    I especially like your unique touches: The appliques tie everything together so nicely, and the offset design of the backing gives another lovely display choice.
