A Fall Finish... Finally

I've finished another wallhanging this week. This one has been in the works for "quite a while". I finished the blocks and sections at our Guild retreat last fall, got the borders on in March and got it quilted this spring- my first time using a Long Arm quilter. I used Nancy Colpitts of Lansdown Studio in Oromocto and was very pleased with what she did. This week I got the binding done (finally!) and as you can see by the pegs on the clothesline, I still have to do the hanging sleeve. And think of a name.... Suggestions?
It's not one of my favourites, but it's done, and Done is Good! It will feel good to hang it as it is beginning to feel fall-ish here in my corner of the world.
Today I picked up a black batt from my good buddy Martha of The Covered Bridge Quiltery in Riverview, so now I can get f8 quilted; want to have it done before next Tuesday night- our first Guild meeting.
I'm hoping to get a Tablerunner done by then too.. we'll see. It may not happen, this being Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival weekend. Come back tomorrow to see some of the prizewinning quilts from the KVQG annual Quilt Show, "Asian Inspirations".


Have patience. All things change in due time. Wishing cannot bring autumn's glory or cause winter to cease.

That is a sweet wallhanging. You showed me the blocks before... Fall is in the air isn't it. I thought the leaves would have turned more by now.
