We were asked to make an unfinished 10.5 or 12.5 block using any fall fabric. To start, I went through my stash and grabbed all my autumn-y fabrics.
I sat staring at the fabrics waiting for inspiration but since my sewing time is limited to my baby's nap time, I figured I needed to just start something so I went to my old standby and started with a quilt-as-you-go log cabin.
Which I then turned into this little zip pouch.
I then thought that maybe I would make an autumn table runner so I took out some linen and started making HSTs. Here is what the block would have looked like:
However, I decided to add a row of sashing between the zig zags since I thought it needed to be wider.
Unfortunately, my seams are totally off and I'm not sure how I feel about the row of sashing. Now I'm thinking I might want to make three rows of zig zags but I'll need to get more linen before I can do that so for now this is a WIP. It is probably better for me to put it away for a few days anyway so I can come back with fresh eyes before I start ripping out the seams.
We were also supposed to name our projects- I enlisted my 9 year old and she named the QAYG block - Fall Time Apple Picking since there are a few apple fabrics in the mix and for the zig zag quilt - zig zaggity zig. So, I'll stick with those!
