Fall Applique Quilt-Outdoor Farmhouse Decor

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well.  To me every day is a gift.  My mom fell pretty hard yesterday and hurt her head....we ended up at Urgent care to get stitches in her head. At 84 she is pretty resilient...I love her...and every day is a gift.  We are excitedly awaiting the arrival of all our kids for Thanksgiving.  Lots of cooking, laughing, noise and dirty dishes at our farmhouse.
Can't wait.

One thing I swoon over is quilts...I don't have much time for quilting but this new ragged edge applique is fun and once the quilt is washed the edges curl up like rose petals.  I made this with fall colors in mind.
I find that I am not swept along with new fashion colors or trends
...because these colors make me smile when I walk by....rusted metal, worn and soft quilts to snuggle in, distressed wood that shows its wear...that is kind
of like me! Hahaha...

I enjoy life and I appreciate the gift of life...and I want to enjoy all that God has for me.
"May God the source of hope, fill you with JOY and PEACE through your FAITH in Him, then you
will overflow with HOPE..."

Love the colors...

 The turkeys are funny, when I walk outside and talk to them they follow me around as if I was speaking their language...They love to gobble at me and I of course gobble back at them...which we both laugh and enjoy...me and the turkeys.
 This bloomed on my back porch...have no idea what it is...but I am embracing the orange/coral color of it! I love orange, pumpkin, rust, coral.  Those colors sing to me.

Glad you stopped by for a visit!

I'm so glad your mother wasn't hurt more seriously and that she is on the mend. You take such good care of her and I know how much you love her!

Looks like you are gearing up for a great Thanksgiving. Very pretty quilt! I wish I had your talent!!

So, are the turkeys going to end up on your table? They are so cute and colorful. I recently saw a picture of a baby turkey chick...it was darling! Hard to imagine it growing up to be what yours are now!!

Have a lovely week, Debbie!

So sorry to hear about your mom's fall, but how wonderful that she is so resilient at her age.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Sorry about your moms fall. I love your colors also and your quilt! Oh and aren't turkeys fun to talk to. We used to have one that lived next door. When he moved away I was actually sad. He would always come to visit us and we would just gobble it up! ;)

Your heart is so sweet! I feel like I am doing the same thing, decorating and planning for the holiday dinners! Love your pretty fall display, snuggling is one of my faves ;)
Big hugs,
