Valerie it looks like the hand of the Picker heard your desires and mine. I'm looking forward to seeing your Blue's Quilt.
Maryz - I'm also looking forward to seeing this quilt when you finish it.
I LOVE Fall colors and have always wanted to make this quilt block and now a quilt from all the PRECIOUS Blocks.

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN!!!!!!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Leaves are definitely becoming more brilliant in colors and I FALL in love with them every year :) :) :) So we will be making a block that has been asked for ...

BLOCK: 12.5" Autumn at the White House (SCRAPPY): It is in the FREE PATTERN section at the top of the Home page here at QIAD.
PLEASE MAKE A TEST BLOCK to find your Quarter Inch. My usual spot was off.
* Each section should measure 3.5" before you sew them all together.
* Take into consideration the thickness of the thread you use.
* IF you are making the Pinwheel in the center 1st and then adding the sections on the sides your pinwheel MUST measure 6.5"

FABRICS: Any FALL Brilliant PRINTs

BACKGROUND: SCRAPPY Light/Medium TAN TOTs or Tans with tiny prints. We want the eyes to go to the brilliant colors and not to the background.
This is just a trial block for me. The next next blocks I make will be SCRAPPY.

Looked at some fabric at walmart yesterday, just don't like their fabric. I have to go to the shed today to get supplies for Dad so will try to get to my actual fall fabrics. May be able to pull enough out of the scrap box. I still have my background from Sept so can use that.
Have a great day! Valerie

I really like this block and the fabrics so I am considering. . We are leaving in a few hours for a week of camping. And October is filling up fast for us as we prepare house, yard, and trailer to leave first of Nov for the winter. But I'm going to try to fit this in. So write my name down! I really need one more fall quilt!
