Glorious Autumn Block Party and Super Deals for Quilters    

Michelle at the Quilting Gallery has harvested a great crop of quilt designers and stores to bring us a fun fall frolick!

You can click over to the main page of the Glorious Autumn Block Party to see who is sharing blocks and deals from now until December!

I'm excited to share with you that I will be providing a block to make! Sept. 25th is my date - I'll remind you again when it's closer. This photo is a result of me pulling and playing with my stash to find some fabrics for my block. I decided to commit to making a few more of the blocks as there will be 3 EACH WEEK! A block bonanza! Since we don't know what the blocks are yet, but are in the autumn theme, I decided to keep my colours bright and fun and not too Halloweeny.

You might also notice the colours are 2 secondary colours - orange and green - and one primary - blue- with my neutral being brown.  This combination gives me lots of opportunity to add dashes or red or yellow {2 more primary colours}, or purple{the remaining secondary colour}, and still have the colours look good together.

I hope you'll join me in making one or two or more blocks! Challenge yourself to make something new - a tablerunner, wallhanging or maybe even a bedsize quilt. All of the blocks will be 12 inches finished so it will be easy to mix and design with your favourites.

I have a fabric picked out for sashing to make at least a wallhanging. I'll let you know as we go if I decide to make a tablerunner or placemats instead.

Are you going to party with us? Join the fun today! 

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
