Too Short Summer...

last weeks have been filled with cold winds... rain.. and cold temps ...
...gosh.. think Autumn came...

way way too early... we use to have wonderful August days.. especially around when School starts over for the kids...
But Brr... having morning temps around 5 C ( 41 F)
we actually make a fire every morning and evening...  and it is early... 

So I made some Autumn Flowers....

and added them to my Short Story...

... and got myself an Autumn quilt...named
Too Short Summer....

One thing though..
I cant decide on which way to hang

First I thought of just adding the flowers to the side...
for fun..:o)
so the blocks are arranged thinking that way...

But when finished.. it looked as good having them at the bottom...
so I took away the hanging sleeve at the back...
 so I could do whatever...

What do you think???

Flowers at the side...
Flowers at the bottom....

Well I think one have to little to worry about...
when things like this get ones all attention..:o))


  1. I like the flowers are the side. And I think the flowers are a lovely addition to the quilt. Hard to imagine you using fall colors, Miss Pastel Queen!

  2. Again a wonderful version, my favorite is flowers at the bottom !

  3. I like them at the side, but did you try them at the top? Just a thought! :0)

  4. I like them on the side as well. Your photos are really beautiful. I always enjoy your collages of pictures.

  5. i found the flowers on the side is better...
    your quilt is so lovely!!!!
    my kindest regards

  6. We've been getting some cooler temps as well. I like flowers at the side, both ways are good.

  7. For en nydelig quilt! Men la blomstene være på siden du...;o)

  8. I like the flowers down the side, as well. What a delightful addition to your Short Story quilt, Stina!

  9. Great quilt, I like flowers at the side.

  10. Wunderful and I like the flowers on the right side ;-)

  11. It has been cooler here as well, fall i definately on the way.
    I like the flowers both at the side and the bottom, so I am not much help- sorry!
    It's a beautiful quilt!

  12. I think I love the flowers either way...but at the side is my favorite!

  13. Hej, din schnibble är underbar!! Blommorna på sidan gillar jag personligen bäst, men det fungerar åt båda håll!
    Kram Susanne

  14. I like them on the side, Stina. Somehow they look too heavy on the bottom. But, whichever way you choose it doesn't matter because it's a gorgeous quilt!

    Great job!

  15. Both good, but flowers on the bottom is more traditional and flowers on the side is more funny and modern.

  16. On my taste, I like the flowers on the side...but it's your preference that counts here :).
    Oh, and the quilt is gorgeous....
    What kind of batting do you use generally ?

  17. It's a beauty and you quilted it! Big smiles here! I like them running up the side.

  18. Hi Sweetie!
    I love what you did with your short's a Swedish Stina Story...
    If you'd ask me, I would hang it with the flowers feels right for me ;o).
    Big hugs,
    p.s.:...only 2 rows of Short Story finished...and no sewing space because we decided to paint our work room...hmpf. I'd rather be sewing this evening than painting walls :(

  19. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous ! Bravo !

  20. Gosh..så lekkert teppe..!!..
    Flotte farger og artig mønster.
    Gjorde det skikkelig stilig med blomstene.
    Og jeg syntes de gjør seg best på siden....

    Kommer nok innom bloggen din igjen, for å titte på alt det fine du lager...


  21. Lovely quilt! I love the flowers in both ways. Probably it woud just depend on my moud who I would hang the quilt. For me on the side it gives a special touch and at the bottom it is just perfect.

  22. I like the flowers on the side and think the whole quilt looks fabulous either way :) You have done another fabulous quilt :) hugs Vicki

  23. Hi Stina
    Your little flowers are lovely and a great addition to the quilt, really make it something special, and the colours are gorgeous even if they aren't pink!
    For what is is worth, I like the flowers at the side...
    Having about the same temperatures as you doesn't reach double digits during the day - brrrr - and it has remembered how to rain...and rain...and rain...I miss the sun!...but we are coming out of winter and into spring...don't envy you getting colder...good thing you have lots of quilts to keep you warm!

  24. What a great idea!!! I am liking the flowers at the bottom.

  25. Side.

    5 degrees is cold! Especially for us. Winter is coming to an end here. I will miss it very much. I don't like summer at all. Too hot!!! Hope your winter goes quickly for you!

  26. I prefer the flowers on the right side.

  27. Lovely quilt (and blog too). Flowers on side looks best to me. How cute you put a button on each flower :)

  28. Blomstene på siden synes jeg. Kjempefint med kanpper på blomstene. Nydelig quilt og farger.

  29. Gorgeous quilt, Stina! Of these two I like those lovely autumn flowers at the side. But have you tried them on the top???

  30. The flowers look great on the side!

  31. Stina, another lovely finish! I like the flowers down the side. So clever how you made this your own!

  32. You are so clever! I like then along the side too. So glad that all your worries today are small.

  33. I like the flowers on the side...very nice!

  34. I've looked at your posting 3 times before writing a comment. I just love this quilt.It's pink and yet---- very much a fall quilt. Tons of talent....I'm not a yoyo fan, but since seeing this, I'm about to attempt and see if I can make one!!!! Great use of fall colors and yet... it's pink!!!! Love the use of wool also. What were the ending dimensions of this cutue???? I love the Flowers on the side..... May I save a copy of this quilt photo?

  35. simply lovely. i like the flowers on the side.

  36. Hi from Sue at again.
    I really like the autumn flowers on the side, it is a bit different, and so it adds to the charm of the quilt. Lovely quilt by the way....really nice! Byee, Sue x
