The pair of scissors have traveled with me before, they are tiny and flight approved. Lets see how this project will look when I return!

A perfect fall day to display my first two rows of the sew along, the last rays of sun were caught before it set.
This year the apple tree bloomed very late, so the apples are tiny and not fit to eat or process. But, they made good support for my two rows!

My DH and I took it with us on our Sunday walk in the forest. It was partly cloudy and the light was perfect.
The charity quilt is made for a boy, and the back reflects this.
Here is a detail picture taken inside, showing off the quilting and the multicolored orange binding.
Another detail picture.
I managed to finish it well in advance of Halloween, and it will be on its way to the hospital as soon as possible.

The same design, though a bit bigger, in the attic window blocks. I'm doing both free motion quilting and using my walking foot.
I will be occupied a few more afternoon/evenings after work on the quilting, and then it will be time for the colorful binding.

I wondered a while what kind of fabric I should use for the outer border. On the original pattern from Red Rooster Fabric, which is called 'The Quilt Shop', there were small flowers on the border. But, I wanted this charity quilt to be suitable for a boy, so I used some camouflage fabric instead. When it is quilted I will put on a multicolored orange striped binding to brighten up the edge.
The way the quilt top is hanging the top stars (six of them) over the roof are not shown. Below I added one of them (sorry about the piece of lint on the fabric). I made them all with spiderweb fabric. I think that fits the quilt perfectly. Now I have to figure out what to use for the backing fabric.
I linked this to Amy's Creative Side to show that I completed what I planned to do.
