Favorite Time of the Year

The daylight hours are getting shorter. The nights are getting cooler. There’s a wonderful crispness in the air. The leaves are turning and falling from the trees. Yes, fall is here. Oh how I love the wonderful yellow, orange, red, and brown colors of fall. Even more I love the colors of the annual visitors to the library. Yes it is that time of year again. The quilts are here. Visiting us this year are Cameron’s Fancy, America the Beautiful, Snake River Log Cabin, Oh the Orient, Granny’s “Heavenly Stars”, Very Hungry Caterpillar, Thimbleberries Sampler, Enchanted Autumn, Blue Log Cabin, Sample My Chocolates, Butterflies are Free, and 22 others. Each year I am amazed at the quilts that come for a visit. I look at them and am overwhelmed with thoughts of the talent and time involved in making this wonderful fabric art. It is so amazing to me how the right pattern selection combined with the right fabric selections combined with needle and thread turn into these wonderful colorful displays. Please stop by and visit with them before they must make their return trip home on October 31.
