A darker autumn block

IMGP0741

Another block finished, a darker one this time, using burgundy and brown. Sorry to see the last of the fabric that makes up the central star shape, it was bought on ebay and must have been a remnant or vintage because I’ve never seen it anywhere else. As often happens, I was happy with the colour combination of the centre part of the block but couldn’t get the outside to quite ‘click’ (the same is happening with the new one I’m working on). Quite pleased with getting the points where the flying geese meet the centre square to meet without the thread showing, but didn’t achieve it on all the outside squares, alas.

Going for a little walk yesterday, I saw that although autumn’s some way off, these oak leaves in the hedgerow were showing some beautiful colours, and some berries and nuts are starting to ripen
