'AUTUMN QUILT'

I just love fall. And leaves. But with the very very windy days, it seems they're all down overnight! :(

Pure Magic Joey.

Karen said...

Your quilt is gorgeous, all the images of fall in every shade and shape. My only regret is the season doesn't last longer. You've captured it!

Your mosaics are unequaled, Joey. Pure pleasure. Wish I could add that autumn display to my computer desktop. :)

Thanks Jenny ... go for it :)

Ah Monica ... you think we have had enough wind! And more on the way! Even UP NORTH, with the HUGE winds this past weekend, the leaves have blown off the trees, way before any have had a chance to enjoy.

Thanks fun iMac :)

Thank you, Karen. BTW your images have been splendid!

Thanks dear Jen ... you well know my heart and what I attempt to achieve :)

Plant Postings, you are a dear and thank you. You are welcome to use this!

Joey, those leaves are gorgeous. I want to print that collage, and hang it on my office wall...it might be closest I get to fall color all season (other than our poison oak, which is a dazzling shade of red at the moment).

Joey, I was just looking at your Blog on Autumn Leaves when you posted on mine. Great minds think alike! Your "Autumn Quilt" is really a nice photo. As you saw in my Autumn post, it is a beautiful time of year. Jack

I still think you should 'posterise' this collage Joey luv - it's just too divine not to! x

Andrea said...

This is very beautiful, a very Joey-ish mosaic of fall. I love to have it on the wall too!

Rose said...

Such a beautiful quilt! Two of my favorite quotes about autumn--I hope you're having enough time to just sit and enjoy the turning leaves.

Kala said...

Gorgeous leaf mosaic - I think I see every color in the world here Joey! What a beautiful creation my friend.

Diana said...

Joey, a beautiful quilt indeed! so warm and cheerful... yes, Liz is correct, you must make it large and framed. Sure hope you've had a wonderful weekend, my friend.

Joey, Is October the best month? I reckon it just might be. Nature's bounty and all that. We get all that wonderful colour and for free. Beautiful collage.

Msrobin said...

Ah yes, someone should make your photos into a quilt! But until then, how about you make that into a poster for your wall? Lovely indeed!
