Here is my Grandmother's Fan block. I didn't want to get my Sizzix machine out so I used the template from this month's 'Love Patchwork and Quilting' magazine, but it left too much negative space so I put another fan in the opposite corner. All my blocks are going to have 'critters' in them.

Ooh do like that Margaret. Especially the little green strips in the fans.

I have mine ready for October.

Lots going on amongst the few of us active on here so hope someone is still up for this monthly challenge.

My selection for October is not difficult and is called Bento Box. I had never come across this block before I found it whilst searching for 12" ones. It makes very interesting designs when arranged in a quilt.

Continuing my greens theme so that I can make up mats for outside tables.

I have seen it before, not sewn it before and I didn't know its name.

I will do it in my autumn colours. I am slowly doing a variety of samples blocks for my bed.

 

I will enjoy doing it during the week

Eileen
