Here are the pictures for my October block. They're heavy on gold, orange and reddish-orange leaves, plus some brilliant blue skies as well as grey clouds and fog. And the ever-present green of the Northwest.
Here are the fabrics I pulled out to pick up the colors in the photos. I realized that I hardly have any red in my stash, and what I have is too red-red to use. I like red in other people's quilts, but for my own work it's usually too bold and feels too aggressive.
Here is the finished block, minus the red leaves. I used yellow-orange thread for the quilting because that color seemed to predominate this month. Onward to November!
Have a colorful day
