Autumn Love Block Party

Hello Fall! Finally. I think this was the longest wait ever for fall right? It's starting to cool down here in forever Sunny Southern California. I can't wait to not use air conditioning and just open windows and doors. My husband likes the house delicious at 73 degrees. 

What better way to kick off Autumn with some fall sewing! I'm joining Lori Holt's Autumn Love Block Party and I signed up to make the Scarecrow. I have to say this is the cutest thing I've ever made! I used Calico Crow Fabric by Lauren Nash for Riley Blake Designs because it was fitting for this block! 

I used Lori's Sew Simple Shapes and followed Sew Along Guide. As usual, instructions were detailed, simple, and easy to follow with great tips. 

I made a mini quilt to hang with lovely fall decor! I may just have to make a couple of more blocks into mini quilts as my sister is requesting this one (her favorite season is fall and her house always looks like fall exploded with all her decorations!). 

Here's my project:

Scarecrow Block  Mini quilt - Autumn Love Sew Along


I used Calico Crow fabric by Lauren Nash for Riley Blake. My absolute favorite print was the crows on gray. I knew when I signed up for the Autumn Block Party, I had to use this fabric. So cute!

I used a decorative stitch for quilting the mini quilt so it would complement the fabric.
