Quilt News and it's September almost fall!

My color calendar color of the month is brown. It's a color that's everywhere, sometimes easy to overlook. I've posted photos with brown objects we see all the time, brown adds depth and fullness. 

This week I got the Nine Patch border pieced onto my Summer 2 quilt. I used light shirting plaids with Kona Cotton solids, a blue calico and grey bird print I found at Jo Ann fabric several months ago.
I'm planning to add a few more borders. All the fabrics are scraps and pieces I've used in other projects.

And that is the news from the valley where the color brown is being appreciated. I'm still studying neutrals and brown tucks neatly into that world.
I have Yoko Saito's book, Patchwork Bags and Accessories, published by Stackpole Books, the collection of brown, neutral and taupe fabrics used in the projects is gorgeous. It's a great book for appreciating construction techniques and beautiful, Japanese fabrics.

That Quilt Friends, is the news from the valley, where we are looking forward to fall. 
How are your projects coming along?
I'll be by to visit.
