a quilt for us

I have finally taken the time to make a quilt for our bed. I make lots of charity quilts and quilts for family and friends, I even made hubby one for his recliner this year, but to date I have not made one just for us.  I almost forgot, I did make us a quilt, I watched a Fons and Porter show, took notes on a quilt I liked and that top is waiting for quilting too, it has been in the UFO basket for 5 years or more, I forgot it was there..
With Autumn fast approaching and me just happening to spot some lovely quilt kits in fall colors at Tuesday Morning store, I knew I would have to make a fall quilt.  But the kits were twin size and I have a King Size bed, that's OK, the quilts were priced really low, I just love Tuesday Morning because of the merchandise they sell at great prices.  So I bought three kits, pulled out the Accuquilt cutter and got busy.  The quilt was now cut and ready to sew, but the charity quilts needed to be finished, so after I finished them last week it was time for ME.  This week, I pulled out the fall quilt and tonight I finished putting on the last border.. Isn't it just lovely... beautiful orange, red, yellow, and browns... not typical fall fabric but I think I like this better.    I won't be quilting this top till I have more quilt tops to work on..so I guess I need to get busy..
