Quilt Block Mania October 2020

Quilt Block ManiaToday is another fun block for you with a theme of family. I kinda strayed a bit on this one, I wanted to do a fall type theme and at the same time keep the family theme. One of my favorite things about fall is of course the colors. I can so remember the time in my life as a nanny in New York where the family took us to Killington, Vermont to there lodge there and the colors on the road to Killington totally made me fall in love with Vermont. I can even remember this big huge like cabbage in a window in the town, it had me so intrigued, I had never seen anything like it. Like the big huge HUGE avocados in New York when I first got there. I couldn’t believe avocados could grow so large, as here on the west coast we always get these really small avocados. I loved that time in my life, being a nanny was one of the best things I decided to do and it was a truly great experience. I not only got to see New York City itself and all the wonderful sites, but experienced looking down from the Twin Towers, and even lying down on the sidewalk and looking up… WoW… it was truly an exciting time. A year later I would be  getting married so I am happy I took that time to do it when I did.

These were the colors for this month… Aren’t they fabulous?

  1. His family is great! Even alone, he reminds me of all the little raggedy dolls out there, being loved by someone. Thank you!

  2. The Scarecrow is wonderful – the facial expression is brilliant. Thank you so much, Marian. Take care and stay healthy!

  3. Thanks for the free pattern. Love the scarecrows ordered the pattern. Think I will be making table runners.
