I am thrilled to be one of the 45 designers taking part in The Glorious Autumn Block Party. There have been so many wonderful blocks presented so far. They would make a beautiful sampler quilt! I'm so happy to have you stop by my blog and check out my 'Oak Wreath ' block. As a designer I find inspiration all around me. To come up with my block that I designed especially for the Glorious Autumn Block Party, I didn't have to look further than my own back yard. I have a majestic Oak Tree right out my back door.
A free PDF copy of 'Oak Wreath' can be found HERE and HERE. I hope that you have fun making my 'Oak Wreath' block.
|This majestic Oak tree graces my backyard.|
|The leaves were just starting to change as I worked on designing my block. It was perfect Minnesota fall weather, sunny and in the low 70's with a slight breeze... love it!|
|I cut 9 4 1/2" blocks to create my background for my block. I'm using Hoffman's Bali Handpaints.|
|I laid my blocks out to create a 9-patch block.|
|Traced leaves on heat and bond, all ready to be ironed onto my contrasting leaf fabric.|
|I arranged the leaves out on to my 9-patch block overlapping stems and leaves to form a wreath. |
Then I iron them onto the block.
|You Could win this!|
