I've been trying to think what the appeal of this quilt is for me, and then I realised what it was. When I came to the US for the first time in 2003 to meet my "sweetie" it was Autumn and all the trees where changing colour, from their usual greens to the most beautiful shades of reds to burgundies, oranges to rusts and the most amazing shade of purple I think I've ever seen in leaves. Although Canberra (Australia's capitol) does go through the change of seasons, I had never seen colours like these before. It got me to thinking, what a beautiful artist God is, He uses His creation as a canvas for us to enjoy. I adore Autumn, for this very reason.

What a pretty name for a quilt, it brings images of beautiful coloured falling leaves, still rivers, and lazy days laying under one of these trees looking up towards heaven. That's the name of the quilt that I hope to make a start on once I've finished the machine quilting on my Lasting Friendship quilt.
