William's hat has one silly pompom on top and a generous brim that can be folded up or pulled down to further cover his ears. His also closes with the adjustable velcro strap under the chin. Both are easily machine washable and dryer-ready.
I'm pretty sure it would be hard to mistake the three of us for turkey or deer now!
PS If anyone would like me to post a tutorial or patterns for this, I'd be happy to. Just ask!

Here's my fabric selection for my mini Fall Quilt. There are a few more days to join if you're interested in the Quilter's Fall Swap. I'm planning to make a mini-runner or place mat with the fabrics and to get it out as early as I can so it can be enjoyed while it's still autumn.
The colors remind me of Savannah's tree swing under the maple's autumn dress of red, gold, chestnut and green:
The perfect place to read her Halloween books and eat apples from the local orchard.

In the autumn, there's no need to look far for inspiration - the golden leaves, the pumpkins bursting off the garden vine, the orchard full of twisty trees bending to the ground under the weight of apples, the browns of the earth silhouetted against the bluest October skies. But just in case you've been too busy to notice, you can still find some inspiration here at the Online Fall Quilt Festival hosted by Park City Girl.

Here's a peak at the baby quilt I'm working on for a friend. The colors are her request and I have to say, they are really growing on me!
