|Why did the chicken cross the road? To leaf the other side LOL|
October 10th is my day to show you my entry into the "Leafs Me Happy" blog hop, hosted by Cherry from Cherry Blossom Quilting Studio Fall is my FAVORITE season of the year! Here in Nova Scotia we have beautiful fall colors on all of the trees and a lot of farms that are selling their abundant harvests; pumpkins, squash, apples, gourds etc.
When I heard about this blog hop I knew I wanted to use only what I had on hand. And the first thing that came to mind was using my paper pieced chicken block. I love that the chicken's body uses a corn pattern. Great for a fall harvest block. I found the pattern awhile ago on Quilters Cache. They have A LOT of great patterns. So I added a few leaf patterned material to make it 12x12. See how great it looks on my fall mantel. It was a beautiful sunny day :)
After I made the block I decided I wanted to make a couple of "fall" mug rugs. A couple of years ago I made a bargello quilt top (that is still not finished) and I had cut off the extra material. I used this pieced material to make my rugs with scrap polar fleece as the batting and a gorgeous eggplant color for the back and binding. What do you think?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog post :) SHOW SOME LOVE :)
