When my daughter and I went to the International Quilt Show here in Cincinnati last spring, I chose an embroidery piece for my daughter to do for me – Autumn – Cherish it! My sentiments exactly. She did her usual beautiful embroidery on it with little scenes of birdhouses, pumpkins, flowers, apples, a church, a harvest moon, etc., and I assembled it this past week to make a mini-quilt table topper.
I tried three different approaches and settled on this one with the green gingham which did not overpower the embroidery. I used decorative stitching for the quilting and added some vintage and decorative buttons.
It shows everything I love about autumn.
