Mad about AcornsI admit it. I'm obsessed with acorns. I love autumn and everything that comes with it - cool nights, snuggly sweaters, leaves turning fiery colors crunching under foot, and especially, acorns large and small. I'm enamored with their shape, perfect for holding a thimble. I think the acorn caps are adorable and have jars of them. OK, maybe I don't need a 12-step program for my particular addiction (some people's husbands would disagree), but there are times when it seems just a tad out of control. Even I was surprised (a little) when I started searching for all the sewing related acorn items I've collected over the years. Someday I'll share all the non-sewing acorn stuff and jewelry inspired by the little nut.
There's the vegetable ivory acorn with a thimble inside...
and even little acorns handmade with KT Oak Haven fabric! Thanks so much to Ginger at TheGingerSnapShoppe.Etsy.Com who created them for me. Check out her etsy site for all kinds of adorable acorns and much more!

So what does an acorn obsessed quilter do when creating a fall quilt? Piece a few favorite blocks using my layered patchwork technique for quick results, and scatter acorns and oak leaves and flowers and berries all over!

My heart flutters every time I look at this quilt. It's one of my all time favs. Next week I'll share the runner and pillow sleeve that were inspired by leftover parts & pieces that coordinate perfectly. I have my fall decor all ready to go. How about you?
