Autumn Trees

It's funny how things work. I've been thinking about making a quilt of autumn trees for an October table quilt, and then I look around blogland, and a lot of quilters are making trees.

So I've been gathering up some fabrics from my stash. Here are some greens.

Here are some tans and golds. I'll want to add an occasional red and orange tree, but I want to see where this goes first.

In the meantime I've cut some strips of fabric and divided it up so I can get some really big trees and some little ones. The oranges in the middle may or may not be the tree trunks, I haven't decided yet.

This is the way I usually work. I get an idea, and even if the idea isn't fully formed in my head, I get started. I know I'll make changes and get new ideas which I will incorporate and I'll find things that don't work and I'll leave them out. The important thing for me is to get started, to explore, and that's what I am doing.
