Autumn Leaves Quilt

Why does the weekend always fly by so fast?? So many projects, so little time! I did manage to piece together my latest quilt top. I'm calling this one Autumn Leaves. All the fall colors remind me of falls up North. Speaking of falls, I was absolutely loving the cool weather that we were blessed with in Florida last weekend. It got down into the 40's at night and I slept with my window open. It was lovely. Anyway, here's a close up of the quilt top. I have decided that I don't mind that all my squares don't match up perfectly. I'm learning to accept the imperfection as perfection!
Here's a view of the entire top. It measures roughly 60 by 60 square. Just enough to cover the top of my bed. I really like the way it turned out. I was able to work in some of my favorites including Farmdale by Alexander Henry. I hope to work on it some more this week, as I have a mini break of sorts Thursday through Sunday. Love!
And here's my helper, Tex. His job is to lay on top, and cover it with gray fur before it's even finished. Brilliant! ;)
Someone had a tough day....he needed a nap immediately!
What fall projects are you working on?

Wow! It looks amazing! It must have been really hard work to make.

Tex is super cute! I think he was trying to make it his own, haha.

Thanks Miki! This one was relatively easy to put together but is waiting to be backed and quilted now.

Tex knows he is a total ham! ;) lol
