November color block

November was many shades of gold and brown, with swaths of glowing orange trees and more blue skies than I expected. I sewed everything down with yellow-orange thread.

Here are the photos that inspired the block:

And here is the year so far,
with only December left to go!

Have a colorful day

i look forward to your each month's composition. What a wonderful prompt to make colorful fabric art! How long have you been making these? Do they end in in a cloth diary of the year quilt?
i love this concept!
i just might have to assign myself this colorful project in 2019!!

Sonja -- I started making these monthly blocks in January as a way to get through the dark winter. At the end of the year I plan to make them into a quilt, although I also like your idea of a cloth diary.

The December block will have to be a dark one to balance out that January one at the top. ;-)
