Color Story: Fall

The beauty of nature inspires quilters in many ways. The changing seasons are often represented in quilts, whether in the motifs associated with a specific time of year, or through the colors apparent outside the window. It’s no wonder that the glorious hues seen in autumn frequently find their way into our art work. Thumbing through some of this year’s issues of MQU, it didn’t take me long to find numerous lovely examples created by our contributors. Here are just a few of them.
