November Stars

As Halloween approached, I was thinking ahead to November. One particular spot in my house is really nice for a seasonal wall hanging. Over the years, I have acquired several, but had nothing really appropriate for that stretch between Halloween and Christmas; in other words, Thanksgiving.

I spent a few hours perusing Pinterest for Thanksgiving inspirations, but I really wasn't looking for something with a turkey or a Pilgrim on it. I ended up deciding to go with brown stars and fallish colors. Something a bit more traditional, you might say.


So what do you think?

It is just a top, at this point. I think I will take an afternoon this coming week to machine quilt it, but I was eager to get it up to see how I liked it. I do like it. The stars are 6.5-inches square and I used a pattern from my Farmer's Wife book. I had all these fabrics in my stash, so it was easy-peasy to construct.

I'm calling it November Stars.

My Thanks for November 3:
I am thankful for beautiful, sunny fall days like we had yesterday. November sunshine in Ohio can be a rare thing.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

I love it when a quilt can spring from my stash without anything being added. That doesn't happen much around here, but I have a small stash. :-)
