Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 41
Method used: hand piecing

Fall is definitely in the air as I post Fred's Square Fair.  It has been raining for days now and the temperature has dropped from 30 (85 F) to 5 (42 F) in less than a week, the perfect Sunday to cozy up and quilt.

You used real fall-colours for this block. In the Netherlands we have a real Indian Summer at the moment.

Autumn colours
We too have had an Indian Summer here
Just celebrated Harvest in the UK
The wind is blowing the leaves off the trees and the colours are gorgeous, nearly time to cosy up and quilt for the winter

It has been warm and sunny for more than two weeks now here in Luxembourg and I long for a little rain. Your blocks I-12 and M-4 are both very pretty, I love the M-4 fabric.

Autumn is definitely in the air, and your fabrics are a pretty reflection of fall. You just keep marking off those numbers. Only 15 left in the center. Impressive progress!

Lovely Autumn colors!
Also here in Belgium the weather changed, but not as much: from 30 to 20 degrees, but also from sunshine to a dark grey, misty sky.

You are moving right along with your DJ. I have hit a bump in the road for some reason. I've done the prep work on several so I can sew when we travel but have not managed to get anything done. Soon maybe. Yours for today is beautiful in it's fall colors.

Fall has definitely arrived here as well. The air is a little more crisp, the skies a little more grey, and the colors are fabulous! Your block is singing autumn, for sure. :)
