It's lovely! Don't you just love it when you stumble upon something that's been forgotten? Crisp evenings are the best -- when you have a quilt to snuggle under.


I am so glad your tomatoes are turning red! Are you going to "put some up" for the winter, or make fresh tomato sandwiches? Either way I know you and your family will enjoy them.

My grand-son loves bow ties. This quilt patern is purfect for him. Thank you for sharing it. You are so thoughtful.


It is so true that I need to learn to sign and date my quilts. I don't remember when I made them. I only had two quilts that I dated and signed. I always think it is not important, but no look back. I wish I could have!


Paula Deen just had a guy on that wrote Civil War recipe cookbooks & they made green tomato pie on the show. I've been wanting to make it ever since. Be sure to blog about it if you ever do it!

Love your quilt! I have an old quilt I got at an auction I bet you'd like. It's a star one. It's on my website... http://byteresa.com/quilt/

Have a great weekend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


It's beautiful! I just learned that from the block of the month I go to, never thought of it before.


This quilt is beautiful (and a really great reminder to sign & date them - thanks!).

I love your new header (although I've loved all of your others, too) - very appropriate for this new fall season!

Thank you so much for sharing so much with us on your blog - it's always so much fun to read and learn new things from you (and I so enjoy your children's creativity too!)

I love the way you've decorated both your porch and the blog for Autumn Vicki. Your quilt truly is lovely, a perfect mix of fabrics.

Thank you for sharing!



The bow tie quilt is wonderful - thanks for sharing the pattern I had never seen this one before. Bernie

Oh yes! I love rediscovering what I have. When you get older, it's one of the joys of forgetfulness. lol

I'm afraid we don't have enough tomatoes to can this year and that is a bit disapointing. On the other hand, the pickles are still going gangbusters (hee hee) and are keeping me plenty busy in the canning department. I just put-up four more quart jars yesterday!

I know what you mean, I have some quilts that I neglected to label, thinking I'd do it later, then forgot. Digital cameras make it easier to keep track of projects and dates. I try and photograph everything soon after I make it for a quick reference later.

vicki haninger

I certainly will! A friend of mine is sitting with a bushel of green tomatoes right now, I may pass this recipe on to him!

It's beautiful! I can't seem to leave a comment on your site and am having similar issues on other blogs. My comment just disappears when I click on publish. Anyone else having this problem? How do you fix it??

Thanks Judy!

Thank you Barb, I do try and make my little corner of the blog world a fun place to visit. I appreciate that you stop by! xo

Thanks for the sweet comments Lena. Merryville is looking pretty spiffy too!

Glad you like it! Thanks for stopping by Bernie!


Just had to return to this post...am shocked that I didn't comment...to say that when I saw a quilt in this pattern at the fair last week, I remembered that I had seen it here first.
