This was a block of the month I did in 2010. The colors are so pretty and make me think of fall. It is always the quilt I choose for our bed at Thanksgiving time. I quilted it with a simple feather pantograph on my long arm machine.

Scarecrows just love me! Scarecrows just love me!
By: Natalie ухтышка,

This quilt was fun to make, working on the back porch during warm fall days. I was trying to improve my skills in several techniques at a time: hand embroidery (acorns and berries), applique, fusible bias (stems), stippling, joining curved lines, different color of binding, according to background.

Shades of Autumn Runner Shades of Autumn Runner
By: Diantha Howard,
Vermont, USA

I started doing machine applique and enjoyed it a lot. I found this pattern in Quilters World Oct. 2010 issue – designed by Carolyn Vagts, and loved it. (I made it a little smaller than the magazine, as our table is not very long.) It will be the center of our Thanksgiving table.

Thanksgiving Blessings Thanksgiving Blessings
By: Sandi Andersen,
Minnesota, USA

This is one of twelve small quilts that I made in the year 2000…….one for each month. I thought of that old hymn “Count your blessings” when I wrote the poem for this quilt. Truly, even one blessing is better than none!

This is one of the first quilts I made. It is a Thimbleberries pattern/kit. I pieced the top and had the quilting done professionally and we used flannel for the backing, so very nice to cuddle with on a cold night. This one is usually out through Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Table Runner Thanksgiving Table Runner
By: Christine @ Quilter’s Diary,

I inherited the center star block from a 95-year-old quilter who died with a lot of unfinished projects. I surrounded the star block with 2-1/2″ strips, which I sewed on using a quilt-as-you-go method. It took less than a day!

I made this quilt a really long time ago, so unfortunately its story is long forgotten. I think it was a kit. I added the turkey border print.

  1. Nancy Salmons says:

    Love them all! Tend to go for the fall colors but am trying to branch out.

  2. Jonatha A. Johnson says:

    I would select Canyon Blaze and the Red Gradients if I win, because I’ve been working on an Autumn quilt, and those reds blending into purple and other shades of autumn would be just ideal to burnish off my Maple leaves.

  3. Patty says:

    This makes me want to make myself a Thanksgiving quilt. I love them.

  4. Tamara says:

    Sundance gives me a happy feeling. I would use it in my rainbow quilt that I am planning. All the colors are beautiful!

  5. Debbie says:

    Sundance is my favorite and I might use it for a border of a paper pieced miniature.

  6. nancy k says:

    I love the Autumn stash!

  7. Carol says:

    I really like the Autumn Stash. I can see placemats or a table runner. Of the gradients, I think Pendleton grabs my attention the most. All the fabrics are beautiful!

  8. Sally Manke says:

    I like Leafy Greens and Grape Jelly. They would be great for an art quilt of Venita, Italy that’s on my idea list.

  9. Susan says:

    They’re all beautiful! I’d probably go towards blue and do a oceanscape wall hanging. Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. Pam says:

    They are all pretty but I do like the Red Sunset fabric.

  11. mariajose says:

    !Me encanta el otoño y las calabazas!!

  12. Gill says:

    I like Morning Glory – it would make a great topper!

  13. Linda McCoy says:

    Beautiful, beautiful colors! I’m collecting blues for an ocean themed quilt. With that in mind, I like the Under the Sea best!

  14. Linda Webster says:

    The gradients are so beautiful. My favourite is Beach Walk.

  15. bobbiesews says:

    I’d love the purple or blue/greens from above but her gradient I choose from her site would be Morning Glory or Emerald City. I think it’d be great in a Trip Around World or Seminole style patchwork. Yum,Yum.

  16. June Griepp says:

    I would choose the Sea and Sky blue gradient. Perfect for a design from Cheryl Phillips Fiber Art book Quilts Without Corners.

  17. Pat H. says:

    Pendleton – Gradient is beautiful. It reminds me of my favorite fall colors. I have a fall colors quilt begging to be. I have been collecting fabric and waiting for the pattern that says Me pick Me I’m perfect. The guild challenge is “In the Forest” and it could work for that as well.

  18. Maks says:

    Love all the colors but the Black Gradient is so beautiful. I would have to put it on the design wall to look at it for quite a while before cutting.

  19. Maria Call says:

    Red Dawn is my favorite, and I’d use it in a two-fabric bargello quilt OR in a landscape quilt that shows an Arizona sunrise.

  20. Kathy Smith says:

    Tough choice for me as I like Coming Home and Rappahannock Sunset. They are bold and just what I’m looking for in sunset type fabrics.

  21. DebV says:

    What beautiful fabric. Great quilts. Thanks for the chance to win. Tough choice on colors. I like Zoisite

  22. Julie in GA says:

    Vicki’s fabrics are all so gorgeous! Right now I would choose the Woodlands gradient.

  23. vandy linhart says:

    they are all so pretty

  24. susana says:

    Rojo atardecer, pero los tejidos de son todos bellos.

  25. Teri says:

    My favorite is “Reunion” — and I think I’d have to make that my focus fabric for a high school reunion signature quilt I’m making for next year. They’re all lovely, though, so it was a hard pick!
