CQ fall themed

Here is my crazy quilting block for a Fall themed swap on CQforNewbies group. Click on the picture to get a close up on details!

I dont celebrate halloween so none of that is on there. But all my other favorite things, ripened grapes, squash (yellow flowers) pumpkins for pie, the colors that remind me of our local trees turning colors. It was fun to stitch this block even though I only had like a week of real time to work on it since I was working 2 jobs in august and that was the month we were suppose to work on it. Well its mailed off to the swap hostess and then I get another persons block to work on and somebody will be working on Mine! then at the end of swap I will get my block back, cant wait to see what happens to it!

The burgundy fabric is velvety brocade type, the brown solid is baby cord, the orange was a silk, the tan a shimmery brocade, the blue is dupioni silk with a purplish shimmer to it, the green is a dark hunter satin and the yellow is also a silk like the orange. The print fabrics are cotton prints that I fussy cut to get a certain piece I wanted. The wheat. The acorns, the oak leaf, the maple leaf, and the pumkin. Oh and the premade embroidery on brown is a lovely velvet cloth! I put buttons on that were leaves, the black button in the orange has a silver leaf emblem on it. When I get it back I plan to put some beads on it but didnt want it to weigh heavy for postage.

Have a great day!

Robin, the block looks great. Your fabric choices were wonderful - great colors and nice angles. I like the seam treatments you chose, too. Those little flowers off to the left really remind me of some of the fall flowers in the forest.
