    I've been putting out my fall quilts and wanted to show you a variation of warm wishes. I didn't have enough of the border fabric to do the alternate blocks, so I bordered them in black. I like the effect, it's a little bit of a variation on the original pattern. I came up with a fmq design with very few stops and starts, but several passes over the same area. The border was fmq by making a grid based on the design of the fabric. Thanks for looking, and Happy Fall to All!

    Your variation takes a plain quilt and really makes it shine.
    Your color placement/contrast really maximizes the pattern.
    And I love the pieced back.

    Love your color choices. Good idea to frame the smaller block.

    I don't usually reply to a lot of posts, mostly because everyone has already said what I want to say many, many times. This one, well I need to say it one more time. I LOVE IT!
