Autumn is my favorite season - yes, not summer or spring as you might think. I love the changing leaves, the cooler weather, the fresh crisp air, and the dark quiet days.
A favorite autumn tradition I have is to enter and attend the Treasures of Tomorrow Quilt Show in Marshfield, WI. This is a judged show with prize money and an overall viewer's choice award.
My lifelong friend Jan and I always attend together and spend the day. Jan has never made a quilt though she is learning to hand piece a sampler I got her started on. She does love to view the show quilts and shop the vendors as much as any seasoned quilter does and she has always been one of my biggest supporters.
This year my entries include "Woods and Wildflowers" 86" x 86"
and "Plain Jane" 28" x 28"
