{Post 1,047} Feels Like Fall Top Finished

The tiny flying geese for Feels Like Fall (all 300 of them) were pieced as a leader/ender project for a few months.  Fun!  

This morning I attached the last piece of the outer border.  I am getting ready to piece a backing out of light green flannel and get it washed so I can (hopefully) start the machine quilting tonight.  Have some new ideas to try out on this one.

The raw-edged appliqued leaves were my own idea.  

In other news today, my husband is going to install a new light for our going-down-the-steps area.  We have had the light fixture for a while, but today's the day it goes up!  

This one hardly casts any light, and it's UGLY.  It does work, so there's that.  Will post an update later!

Oh, I do like that pattern. And the plaid background. And the raw edge leaves. Perfect fall quilt. Geese overhead and pumpkins on the ground. Soon to be in pies. I'm soooo ready for fall. Now I'm anticipating your special quilting treatment.

Love that fall quilt. All those little flying geese--you are persistent. And the leaves are a nice touch. Look forward to seeing your quilting on it.
