Fall already?

Here in the pacific northwest, you can tell when it is fall. The leaves shift from green to yellow and the most brilliant shades of orange and red. We have early morning fog and there is a slight chill in the air. Starbucks has pumpkin spice lattes now, not my thing, but I do love eggnog lattes

All of a sudden, I feel the need to make a quilt. Lately, I've been more of a starter, not a finisher. I enjoy making the blocks, thank goodness I have a stunt finisher. I just lose interest and apparently I'm easily distracted. We have a king size bed with a down blanket, but I need to make a quilt. Not sure what I want. We have a mahogany sleigh bed. It screams traditional, but I just can't bring myself to commit to a large traditional. I could cheat and do a duvet cover for the down comforter. My bucket list contains a double wedding ring, I could do that, curves don't really scare me. Winding ways, those scare me! Oh that center! I really like a log cabin, maybe in French General? I like bloks of the month, just not a hand appliqué kind a girl. I know how, just can't sit still long enough to do it.
