But it really doesn't feel like it here. With the temperatures hovering around 105 degrees for the past week, and forcasted for the rest of this week, it's really hard to think autumn. But, I think it's that way every year. By the time the end of September comes, it seems like a little break from the heat is deserved! To try to get into the "fall" mood, I made a little table runner with a fall theme. I've wanted to do this for the past couple of years, but finally just did it. I used scraps from my stash, and just combined several maple leaf blocks, a basket block, and some flying geese. The centerpiece was an applique block from Sue Spargo's collection. I had to do a last minute "design change" because I miss-cut my block after the applique was done, and knew if I set it in a straight set, the error would be glaring! So, I turned it on point, added some fall colored setting triangles, and there you go.
