I want to send HUGE thanks to our lovely cheerleader, Cherry, the wonderful hostess of this hop and to our favourite head cheerleader, Madame Samm. Thanks to each of you for leading us, inspiring us and cheering us on!
What have I sewn to share?...The first block I'm sharing is one of several newly sewn blocks...it is being added to ones I sewed earlier this year... ( for a quilt started from leftovers). I've been waiting months to gather just the right fabrics to help me finish this quilt. Thinking about what blocks I could make for the blog hop, I soon realized that I had a perfect fall coloured project already started...plus, I had just acquired a few more orange fabrics... meaning this would be the perfect time to add a few more blocks towards finishing.
I'm sure you'll agree, the design of this block is quite simple, but wait until you see what happens when you make several of them and start playing with a layout.

I know the blocks look pretty ordinary at this stage... but if you look close at the pumpkins you may notice something odd about them (no, I'm not referring to their less than symmetrical shape... ;o). Look closer... do you see stitch lines and slash lines (probably easiest to see on the applique in polka dots, above)?
