Fall Festival #2

Continuing on with the quilt-a-long that Lori at Humble Quilts organized, here are the blocks that she gave us for homework in February.  To refresh your memory, the pattern is by Jan Patek.  I'm doing my applique in wool with cotton backgrounds.






These pieced stars aren't  the easiest to work with.  I finally had to draw my own paper piecing pattern in order to get the correct seam allowance.  Grrrr




So that's it for this month.  Can't wait to see what our homework is for March!   We are really moving right along.   

Thanks, Lori, for this fun project.

I never join Lori's SALs, partly because I don't applique, other than wool. Seeing your blocks in wool was a "Duh" moment for me. Really look good!

I really really like your wool turkey!! Adding wool will provide a great dimension to this quilt!

I see you are using both cottons and wool for the applique. I dislike making those stars. I use freezer paper and make templates. With paper piecing, I tend to end up with fabrics going the wrong direction and I am not good at paper piecing anyway. Your blocks look great!

Love your choices for the blocks, I also use fabric and wool in appliqué.
I tend to get lazy and find wool for small pieces, is so much easier;)
