Fall is here! Fall is here! Fall is here! That means it's time for things like apple pie and the changing of the leaves!
Fall is my absolute favorite season, so that's why I jumped at the chance to be in this hop! Thanks so much to Mdm Samm and Cherry for hosting and getting everything ready for us all.
here. Here's a list of everyone sharing the day with me:
You Please visit them all and cheer on their day!
I have just one block to show you all, but plan on making many more of them. Here's the fabric that I used.
I wanted a variety of reds, orange and browns to bring out the colors of fall. I plan to make these into 36 blocks - 9 of each type.
So, without further ado, here's the block I put together for you:
This picture doesn't look too good, so I snapped a couple more outside on my balcony (see below). The leaves around us are right at their peak for changing colors and I wanted to capture that in my quilt.
This block features brown, crimson and red colored fabrics on an orange crinkled background. I plan to make 3 other leaf color combinations in reds and oranges for the other blocks with backgrounds in red, brown and tan.
I made up the leaf pattern myself. It's pretty similar to the other ones that I've seen. When I created it, I didn't have a computer nearby to look up a pattern, so I sketched it out and made it work. I hope that the finished quilt looks something like this, but with more saturated colors:
**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**So, if you've made it this far through the post you deserve a giveaway! I have 2 things to give away this time:
3 fat quarters of this fall print. It has bird houses, wheat, sun flowers, hearts and other cute little prints on it.
And this Christmas panel. It has some really cute snowmen prints and quilty stars on it, so it would make a really fast wall hanging.
To enter to win, you have 2 chances. For the first, just leave a comment on the post letting me know what your favorite fall food is. For a second chance, be a follower and leave me another comment letting me know. I'll draw a winner on Saturday, October 6th, so comments will count until Friday, October 5th to 11:59PM central standard time. Good luck everyone!

Enjoy the rest of the hop, and happy crafting!
