Autumn Quilt block

In the Crazy 4 Quilting Group, we have started a Round Robin of Autumn Quilt Block. The top picture is of my naked block. The group has 12 - 14 people participating in the group. It should take about a year to complete this round robin. I think fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. The colors of the leaves of the trees and bushes are so vibrant with different colors. The air is starting to get a little cool at night but not enough that you need the heat or air on in the house. The breeze from the wind is cool and crisp.
The fabrics that I picked bring out the bold and bright colors of the fall. I have a gold metallic variegated fabric, fall leaf variegated fabric, Scarecrow and pumpkin fabric, chocolate brown green& orange gold fleck fabric, red & green plaid fabrics. I needed to make at least 13 patches and twice as many seams that was a had thing to do for me. The same fabric was used to make a journal to go with the block that everyone could write a little message or doodle what they are going to do on the block
When I have a chance to this Weekend I am finally going to be able to pick up the book Treasury of Crazy Quilting Stitches at the Barnes & Noble bookstore. They had to specailly order the book in for me because they didn't have any on the shelf. I was just glad that the book was back out on the shelves again because I have been trying to find it for the last 5 months and all the bookstores said it was out of print and the only pakce to buy it was on the internet and the price was at least $ 40.00 for a book but instead I will get it for about $25.00. I'm sure that the book will me to gain a better knowledge of the stitches that can be combined and look good together.
