Split Jack Batik Quilt for Fall in My Sewing Room

I can not believe that it is going to be September next week ! I have really been in the mood for Fall ! My favorite time of year . The trees are changing color already with leaves and acorns falling everywhere. I hung this Split Jack Batik quilt in my sewing room today. My Dear friend Doreen made these beautiful quilt blocks last year and I finished them into a quilt. This is my first attempt on machine quilting.

The Split jack quilt is hanging under my shelf in my sewing room that has part of my collection of Casige Antique Childrens sewing machine's from the early 1900's. Each sewing machine is a storybook theme. Hansel and Gretel , Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf and Cinderella and birds......

Fall is in the air !!!

Cozy Little Guest room

I have been trying to make my guestroom Cozy for my guest when they come to visit us. The room before had furniture in it that we just seem to be stored in here. So we sold a few pieces of furniture and re arranged the room. I really like the bed in the corner. Gives more room to walk around. The nightstand table is tempory till I find a nice round table to take its place. Then I want to switch the lamps putting the antique lamp next to the bed and the rabbit lamp next to the chair. My dear friend Winnie gave me the headboard , chair and the beautiful watercolor painting above the bench many years ago. I just love them !

Cozy little wicker chair in the corner with antique quilt just inviting
someone to sit and read a book . No that is not a real cat under the table

Wicker bench to set a suitcase on during there visit. I found a new home for my Maison Bleue with a real Hydrangea Wreath hanging beside it. I think is is just perfect for this room don't you ?
