October is Browns and Blacks

Bella likes Fall because well, those are her colours. She has perched twice now on or near the brown arrow block so I thought it picture worthy.


So here are my blocks for my RSC projects. I just need two more blocks for my Arrows RSC project #1. They will not be side by side in the quilt so I made one in browns and one in blacks.


Finishing this quilt will go on my last quarter FAL list. But that's another post. I forgot to get a photo of the HST blocks I generate, but generate them I did, and incorporate them in the little wallhanging that's become another RSC project, I will.

I also made both Tiny Tuesday blocks for October, as I'd fallen behind due to Brianne and Brady's visit.

The colours here are just starting to turn. I know I say it every year, but I absolutely LOVE fall here in southwestern Ontario where it is slower, gentler, as in temperatures gradually dropping (it was still quite literally pool weather last week) and lasts much longer than in Alberta, where I spent the majority of my life.
From left to right: a red oak, just beginning to  turn here and there, black walnuts in the background losing their leaves first as per usual, a Linden tree all green still, an English oak, which loses its leaves in spring, and lastly on the right, another humongous tree that we do not know, but it is just starting in spots to go gold.

And that's all for today! We had a quiet Thanksgiving here, just MacGyver and me, some good food, and FaceTime with Brady and the daughters, who are both celebrating the feasting and gratitude on the Sunday of the long weekend as well. Together in spirit, all. Monday means leftovers and a nice slow-paced day. Oh, and I'll be working on my October challenge too, which is Thanksgiving themed.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to you. Sounds like an enjoyable day tomorrow -- leftovers & sewing! Your blocks are looking good. I especially like the Arrow blocks. Wasn't that TT block with the partial seams fun???? I loved doing that one myself!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the day. Bella looks so beautiful next to the quilt blocks. It’s funny how pets are drawn to quilts and works in progress.

  5. The weather suddenly changed here. A week ago it was hot hot hot. Then we had three days of weather in the 80s (F) and now it is chilly. A cool front and rain came through on Saturday and changed it completely.

  6. Hi Sandra! Happy Thanksgiving! I'm glad you got to enjoy a quiet time. I was just looking at my linden tree yesterday, and it hasn't lost any leaves yet. I think all the rain we've had have kept the trees from stressing and turning early. It's odd to me that just a few maples are starting to show their gorgeous oranges, but I can be patient! ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Happy Thanksgiving, Sandra! Glad you had a nice holiday together, whether it's face to face, or Facetime. Bella looks pretty good next to those fun blocks. Has she adjusted to all of the noise (renovs and dogs) yet?

  9. You must be getting close to finished on the arrow quilt. Can't wait to see it and your other RSC projects. Happy Thanksgiving! Nothing better than leftovers, in my opinion, though not everyone agrees!

  10. I didn't know there was a tree that dropped its leaves in the spring! How unusual. I suspect the photo of Bella has the arrows pointing the direction that she sheds. Or is she one of those WonderCats that doesn't??

  15. I'm usually a bright kind of gal, but I'm with Bella here. I love those blocks and those rich browns.
