Fall Fabric and first quilt squares

I have loved fabric for a very long time and have been collecting quilt patterns for many years. Yesterday I picked out a pattern that I liked and headed to the quilt store for some fabrics. My original color selection soon vanished once I found these wonderful combinations in red, brown and gold tones. LOVE THEM. Now, once I finish my first ever quilt, then I will start on this one. Here are some pictures of the new fabric and some of the 9 block quilt squares in various shades of yellow and green. Let me tell you that these are not my first choice of colors because they are the colors of the Oregon Ducks, however, as a mother, one must make sacrafices for their one and only child. Since he is a fan of them aweful ducks, thought I would make him a quilt in their color! Once I am done, I will post the final product.


  1. Nicely done Michelle, Oh those colors are just so mean the red, brown and gold ones of course!!!
    Did you go to Speckled Hen, I think I am seeing some Jo Morton fabrics there. Love them.
    Can't wait to see what you do with them.
    Congratulations on your blog. Love the name too!

  2. Thanks! I have NO IDEA how the back ground turned out this way. I didnt pick it but I like it. I didnt get out there this weekend. Maybe this next weekend? Its hard when Holden has football at 1pm. If they are open Friday night, I can venture down there.

    I started pieceing the green and yellow quilt together and it is just too busy for me, so I am now thinking that I will make some plain green squares to help break it up? Not sure. It definately is a learning process when doing one without a pattern and not really knowing what to do, but I will figure it out. Holden will love it either way.

  3. HI Michelle,
    Just came by from Carrie's blog to say hi and welcome and to wish you a Merry Christmas.
