Autumn Splendor

 It's time to start crunching leaves and adding pumpkin spice to everything. Autumn is just around the corner !  We're featuring some of our favorite quilts that celebrate this time of year.

My California Dreamer by Barbara Wiseman (Athens, Pennsylvania). Quilted by Barbara Wiseman and  Lynette Schulz

This glorious original design quilt was exhibited at the Road to California quilt show in January, 2020.  (Note: the black chain was part of the display stanchions, which were placed in order to keep people away from the quilt... it's not part of the quilt itself!)

The image is nearly life sized, giving the viewer the impression of standing under the tree and admiring the colorful leaves from below. Barbara Wiseman says she made this quilt for her son, who lives in California but loves the trees at home in Pennsylvania.  She says, "I spent years studying photos, art, and quilt techniques to make this for him."

We're hoping to attend some live quilt shows again in 2021.... how about you?!
