Good morning everyone!  Fall weather is starting to creep in and it makes me start thinking about winter.  Oh no!  I'm not ready for that.  Hopefully, we will continue with mild fall temps for a long while.  But, as the weather gets cooler, it does give us more time inside to quilt, doesn't it?  I am working on a new pattern and will post a photo here below.  It is a set of seasonal basket wall hangings.  I am trying to come up with a name for the pattern and maybe you can help.  Give me an idea of which name you like from the following list:

Basket Banter

Basket Chatter

Basket Chat

Basket Wisdom

I have two previous patterns called "Pillow Talk" and "Pillow Talk, Too!" so I am trying to come up with the same type of "catchy" title here.

What do you think?  Any of those titles for the pattern sound good?  Thanks for all the help!!

Stay tuned for the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Blog Tour coming in November.  You have a chance to win great prizes from Quiltmaker magazine and also win a copy of the 100 Blocks magazine by visiting my blog on the day of the "tour".  I will keep you posted on the blog tour dates and other information as the time approaches.  There are many designers taking part so there is a chance to visit many creative blogs and websites.

Well, that's all for now.  Enjoy the day and keep stitching!

As I write this it is a 76 degree, not a cloud in the sky day here in North Iowa.  I love it when it stays warm like this into September.  The winter lasts long enough as it is. I don't need it starting any sooner than it has to.  I started my fall decorating though.  It's fun to get those pumpkins and mums out around the house.  The gardens have been groomed for fall (which took all weekend!) so here we go.  Unfortunately, today I have lots of work to do so I am looking out at this beautiful weather.  I may just kick off my shoes in a bit and take a swing on the hammock.

I have finished two of my latest patterns and they are on their way to the distributors next week.  I have the samples traveling with two of them to the fall quilt market in Houston as well.  Hopefully, I will get some good feedback on those.  I am excited to be included in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks issue that will be on newsstands November 16th.  Designers have contributed blocks that are published as basically a "block book".  The 1st volume last year was a huge success (I also had a block in that one).  Look for it on newsstands; it's a really fun magazine.  As the release date gets closer, I will post more information and also a picture of the block I designed.  Meanwhile, I will post a photo here of one of my new designs called "Autumn Breezes".  I do love to design season themed patterns!

Well, that's all for now.  Happy Quilting!
