Welcome Fall and BOM Rehab Time

We had an absolutely amazing fall weekend with warm days and crisp nights.  I did manage to get a little sewing done on Saturday.  I spent some time finishing Speck and starting Hubble for AYOS.  I love both of these patterns.  For both of the quilts, I dug into my scrap pile for the fabrics.   I really need to do this more often!  I just seem to REALLY like all the new fabric lines I see!  The only BOM I worked on was the Designer BOM from the FQS.  I am so glad to say I am now caught up.  It just makes you happy to sew with Vintage Modern! 
Sunday after church and lunch with 2 sons and families...(sorry should have come home this weekend), we went to the Farmers Market in Greensboro.  Too many choices for pumpkins and too many decorating ideas on Pinterest to decide on which ones to buy!  Carter and Callaway picked their favorites.
But I think Callaway enjoyed papaw's ice cream cone better!
Have you ever had unexpected breakfast guests?  This morning after Callaway and I were finishing with ours, I looked out the back door and saw some visitors.  They were happy to stay outside and munch on acorns. 
I counted at least six and they stayed about 45 minutes eating and frolicking. 


  1. I was at the same farmers market on Saturday and bought some mums and apples. There sure were a lot of different pumpkins.

  2. Vintage Modern is a happy fabric line. I love your blocks. What cute little ones to take to the farmers market. We don't get visitors like yours in our yard. Have a great week.

  3. Your FQS blocks are lovely. I'm a bit sorry that I didn't sign up for this one now that I keep seeing the blocks, it's going to be a gorgeous quilt. Love your pumpkin phots, that sounds like a lovely day out.

  4. The deer in your yard is so quaint!

  5. Congratulations on being all caught up on your FQS BOM!!! Good for you! And it looks like you are enjoying the change of season too... I love the sweet little deer and those little ones with the pumpkins are are adorable!

  6. I almost signed up for that Bom myself. Love that vintage modern. I bought some and am using it for the votes for women block of the week.
