My favorite time of year! In September, the leaves are starting to turn a bit, and the orchards are fragrant with ripe apples. It's time for a picnic at Cedar Lake. We'll pick some apples, then have a picnic under the pine trees. Later, if somebody will get that canoe off the top of the woody… we can row around the lake. I'm going to make apple crisp when we get home, how about you?
This little quilt is colored pencil tinted, hand embroidered, and pieced with easy flying geese borders. So very "Autumn"!
Quilt measures 19.5in x 16.5in.
