Celebrate Fall

This week was spent getting ready for Thanksgiving and finishing up my project for Celebrate Color. I have been really wanting to make a plus quilt and a fall runner for our table, they ended up being the perfect combination. 

I just love the way the fabrics came together!! Really I am obsessed with looking at this. I began by pulling fabrics from my stash with the fall colors I had in mind and then tried to balance the patterns. After I had picked my patterned fabric I chose a few solids and started cutting. After I laid out all the pluses I decided to add the Kaffe Fassett circles and gray Heath. 

 I chose the Aviary 2 Woodgrain for the binding and I like how the pattern goes around the corners. I love how this turned out and I am definitely going to be doing more with plus quilts.

Here is a little bit of the Willamette Valley which has beautiful fall colors right now. Yesterday we didn't do black Friday we did what I dubbed Red Friday. We headed out to the vineyards for wine tastings. Every year the wineries have special tastings the 25th and 26th and it's a great tradition. These were all taken with my iPhone but I think they turned out pretty well. Oregon is such a beautiful place!

Be sure to head over to Celebrate Color and see all the inspiration they have to share.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! We did and I am so thankful for my family, friends, and quilting!

Lovely Petra! This turned out great :) I am also newly discovering how much I love the plus quilt design since I am in love with the green plus pillow that Jacey made me :)
