Autumn is really my favourite season : no matter the fresh wind and the rainy days, I absolutely love the warm and changing colors of the trees, the sound of the tractors working in the fields, preparing the earth for next spring, the birds flying away to sunny countries...... all these changes that are going to lead us to Christmas and the snow (I'm a winter girl - Sagittarius - ).......
I made this quilt 10 years ago. It was hand-pieced (take-along projects are my favourite ones), and I used any autumn color fabric I had, or I could" beg or steel" from our bee. I called it "Autumn Dance". It is certainly not perfect and accurate, but I love it because it was my first attempt to "colors mixing" (now I would say "scrappy leaves", but didn't know at that time what "scrap quilts" meant). It was also the first quilt I put in a local exhibition and I was sooooo proud !

Good, sweet, jazzy, blues music to listen to (Toots Thielemans and his harmonica, Tracy Chapman, Nora Jones)
A glass of Spanish Moscatello
A feeling of "good times coming", don't know why.....
