Width: 11.75" Length: 8.75"

Materials/Techniques: 100% cotton fabrics and batting, many variegated and some solid-colored threads used for stitching. Hand embroidery for bird's nest and parts of scarecrow, machine satin stitching completed on all letters and tree. Signed in lower right corner, machine quilted. Yarn for scarecrow's hair with 3-D leaves assembled and attached with machine stitching.

Artist Statement: Autumn is definitely in the air! This is the third installment of my "Season Series", following "Spring" and "Summer" quilts I completed earlier this year. It is an original design that brought me so much joy throughout the entire process. The bluebirds are still around even as their old nest collects falling leaves. The daisies are long gone and autumn leaves replace their beautiful color. This is my 34th AAQI quilt and September block-of-month quilt. Thank you to all who purchase these little quilts, I continue to be touched by your wonderful generosity for such a great cause.
