I’m not sure I started out to create a summer-into-fall palette, but that’s definitely what’s on my mind these days so I’m not surprised! I am so ready for apple cider, apple pie, cold nights and bright sunny afternoons, planting winter greens, picking up my knitting needles, watching the leaves change color and then drop… Summer in Maryland is no celebration in my book, but here the Fall seems to stretch out forever, and for that I will be grateful.
Once again Pink Chalk Fabrics had just what I had in mind in stock- rich, warm fall colors set off by a few pale summery greens. Perfect.
I love this star block which I first saw on the blog of Eleven Stitches, who got the block out of Carol Doak’s book 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Stars. I am not a machine-paper-piecer so I modified it to something that I would enjoy doing. I figured you could do this in slightly- improv- fashion and love the results just as much! (Or in my case, much much more!)
In real life this would look scrappier -especially where the corners meet- but my I do have my limits when it comes to Photoshop time. 🙂 Now I’m off to place a little fabric order to celebrate Fall’s arrival. Oh and a little knitting as well. So happy this time of year!
