Autumn Splash

Autumn Surprise

Autumn Splash is made with cotton fabrics from my stash. The batting is high loft poly to give it that squishy, quilty, hugginess (new words!) and ease in laundering. Forgive me for the chalk markings in the pics. It’ll wash right out in the laundry. Next time, I’ll remember to remove it before I take pictures.
