Today was a running around type of day. It is extremely hot and uncomfortable. When I returned home, I thought it might cool me off if I started on the Harvest Basket block by April Adams. I had a lot of fun making this block. For the first two blocks, I have been able to use fabric from my autumn stash. For the second block, the only new fabric I used was the grunge fabric that I purchased last week. Thanks to the great directions on the pattern, and extra tips from Abbie and Sherry, I was able to complete this block without any problems.
Oh, by the way…it is still hot! I have the AC running, but I needed to have a box fan in my sewing studio.
It is only June 1.
I don’t even want to think of August.
Autumn is my favorite season, so I decided to join the Fall Into a QAL by Partners in Design.
During the coming hot summer days, I will be able to have some Autumn Moments as I make these blocks. The first block is an adorable hedgehog designed by Vanda of Quilt in Piece.
Last year, I purchased autumn fabrics to make various projects. I had enough pieces to make this first block. I enjoyed making this cute little creature. My hedgehog is named Hojas Hermosas…Beautiful Leaf.
A big thank you to Abbie !
