Fall Flowers

After a long, hot summer it's finally starting to feel like fall around here!  Mina has been a star contributor to my monthly block drives and along with her October string blocks she sent in 18 of these awesome big flower/star blocks in pretty fall colors.  I got the first 9 assembled onto a top on the design wall.

Also recently on the design wall, the second of the quilt tops made from Linda's UFO project I got in the quilty orphan adoption event. The first top was very controlled but this one is completely crazy scrappy, except for the chains going through on the diagonal.

Both of these quilts will eventually go to Covered in Love. Thanks so much to these ladies and to everyone who continues to support this project :)

Linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday.


  1. Wow, I think these look great!

  2. What fun, those flower/star blocks really show how different blocks look when the value is changed in some places. The second quilt top is so striking with the stripes.


  3. The fall flowers are a lovely bouquet. The orphans found a good home with you!

  4. Beautiful blocks! The colors are very fall like too!

  5. Both have a very fall-ish feel to them. The second one is very interesting. My eye keeps moving around it looking for more. Great job!
