It sure would be nice to be posting this month’s First Friday Freebie on a cool, crisp Autumn day but that’s not going to happen until tomorrow. For the last four days, we’ve been experiencing record breaking temperatures for this time of year in the mid to high 90’s and along with the oppressive humidity, it’s been brutal.
This month’s FFF is an Autumn-inspired mini quilt called Autumn Blessings. It combines both pieced and stitched blocks with some wool appliquéd elements. I had the best time not only creating it but also when adding the embellishments. I could easily have gotten carried away and found that I really had to restrain myself. I hope you have fun making it your own.
My friend Nancy did the free motion longarm quilting which is amazing. The photos really do not do it justice at all. Can you make out the pumpkins in the black border pictured above?
Some closeup detail…
As soon as the weather turns more Autumn-like, I will be hanging it in our entryway by the front door.
The finished quilt measures approximately 25” x 25”.

If you have any photos of finished projects of my designs that you’d like to share with everyone, please feel free to upload them on the Flickr Gallery page that I created just for this purpose. You can link directly to it by clicking on the FFF logo on the left sidebar. We’d all love to see them!
Have fun and as always…
