To those of you who suggested the brown "branches" for the autumn Rapid City quilt, you called that one right! I finished the blocks late this afternoon; here they are all together (although I will likely rearrange them a bit before sewing them together).
My sewing room has lovely big windows on both the south and west sides of the house, so as the sun set it was shining right on this wall just as I was putting up the blocks. It positively glowed...and it made me want a cup of warm apple cider. Let the weekend equinox celebrations commence!
