Make sure you check out the other blogs and give lotsa bloggy love!!!
Now on to my block(s) and project. Using 5 Fall fabrics
and a paw print blender (not pictured), I put together a tossed 9-patch. I used the Eleanor Burns pattern and she does a great little video on how the pattern is put together (and how to do her swirling centers!).
I didn't get any photos of the blocks before they got put together, but here is one of the blocks zoomed in:
Then I added a small inner border of the paw print to frame the whole thing. I used the left over 5" squares and cut them in half, mixed them up and sewed them back into the outer border.
Here is a close-up of the quarter block:
I can't wait to get this on the long arm!
A couple close-ups of my favorite parts of one of the fabrics I used:
