For Jessica

NovemberQuiltBlock

I've loved working on Jessica's Autumn-inspired block this month. I've enjoyed poking around her blog, attempting to guess her color and style preferences and in the process, getting to know a little better the creative, charming girl behind the blog.

The embroidered leaf and acorn were inspired by her beautiful new Fall table runner and I added that big bold Michael Miller print to tie together the subtle patterns of her fabrics with the bold outline of the embroidery. I've looked at it too long to decide, but I think it all works? I'll let Jessica decide :-)

So thanks, Jessica for inspiring cozy, tea-filled evenings spent embroidering, planning and piecing and I hope the end result elicits a mix of tradition, charm and reverence for nature, just like ms. turkey cookies herself!

Happy Fall and happy quilting!
