Fall Festival Month 2- Photo Heavy

We had a big assignment for the second month of Fall Festival. The turkey was optional, so that is fine if it isn't complete. Just keep working on it for next month's show and tell.
 I'll probably loose a few points on my stars, but they are done!

Here are Debby D's blocks.
I'm adoring the turkey fabric.

 Here is Rina's block 1
Here are Denise's moons from last month and the rest for this month.


 Mona's great blocks!
I didn't want to tell her that I don't see the flag. :)

Next month's assignment:

 3 Pineapples 12 1/2 x 8 1/2
                                                               2 square baskets 12 1/2"

 and 1 tall basket 18 1/2x 8 1/2

And if you have time,  make a few flying geese (finish at 4x2") for the sashing so they will not all be left at the end. Next show and tell April 3rd!

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Great job, ladies! Boy, do you have your work cut out for you this month! Good thing there are 31 days in March! Hahaha! Looking forward to seeing you progress!

  2. Love seeing all the blocks. They are all so different. Everyone is doing a great job!!

  3. I so enjoy seeing each person's fabric choices for the blocks. Selecting fabrics for a quilt project is my favorite part of quilt making. I will drop by later to follow the links to see more.

  4. Everyone has doing great job, I love the pieced stars. I did appliqué my stars and still working on the turkey, but I haven't start the flag.
    I like this new adventure!

  5. Lori bonitos los bloques
    todas las chicas están haciendo un gran trabajo

  6. That was a lot of blocks for a short month! : )
    Great variety in the individual interpretations. Hopping over to see Karen's blocks now.

  7. The blocks this past month were great fun and I love seeing how everyone is creating their own quilt through fabric choice! I'm wondering if anyone besides me notices that Lori knows that Fall is only a few short months away? Whew, we've got a lot of fun blocks again this month, including some reverse applique.... YouTube here I come!

  8. Just like I said: a real taskmaster you are!!! VBG
    Still love your rooster!

  9. It's so fun to see all the blocks in one place and note the variety of fabrics used. I like how each one has it's own personality. The tiny checks and plaids will probably always be my favorite! Thanks for taking the time and effort to share all of these, I'm enjoying them.

  10. That turkey block is so much fun to see. I wish I could work along with you. Maybe next time. Thanks for sharing all the great blocks.


  11. All the blocks are looking good. I love seeing everyone's interpretation and fabric choices. Thanks Lori for doing this. By the way, what's the date for the next reveal?

  12. I just LOVE seeing everyone's blocks for this month! You are all doing a fabulous job! The turkey block is definitely my favorite. Love the baskets for next month, but then I have a soft spot in my heart for baskets.

  13. I love seeing everyone's blocks!


  14. I love those star blocks! BTW, I have been looking for star buttons for the Flags of the American Revolution quilt and the only star buttons I have been able to find are really cheap plastic flat buttons. I know you recommended flat buttons, but do you have any idea of a place that would have nice looking flat buttons?

    1. I think Jan Patek sells the buttons for Flags on her website. But Lori[?] had problems with them not being drilled for sewing, so look carefully. Also try searching etsy.

  15. They are all just beautiful. The turkeys are my fabric. Thank you for sharing.

  16. Love seeing the variation, I love them all. I do mostly prim for me, but I love other styles as well, so fun to see how it looks in different prints.


  17. These are all looking wonderful. What a fun sew along.

  18. I love your star blocks. It is fun to see what fabrics everyone is using. Hugs

  19. Love Debbie's turkey especially! And those pineapples and baskets--drool....

  20. Love seeing all the fabrics! I finally caught up! Going to try to prep the pineapples tonight!
