Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 5 Blog Tour
Glorious Autumn Giveaway Winner

Glorious Autumn Block Party & A Giveaway

 Hello & thanks for stopping by!



There have been some really great blocks in this block party...don't you think? Each day that we get to see a new block I envision what I'd like to make with it. Should I make a cute fall table runner, or maybe a set of placemats? A wall hanging or a fun, fall throw. There are just so many ways to go with these blocks! This week I am joined by Sarah at Sew Joy Creations who has been creating and showing us the blocks as we go and Amy at Butterfly Angels who has some great pictures on her blog! The Glorious Autumn flickr page has lots of inspiration and it's a great place to share your creations! 

My block is called Fall Burst. It's a quick, pieced block that would work well with lots of different fabrics and colors.

Fall is my favorite season. I'm one of those people who always runs a little hot, so to speak. Too much heat and humidity and I'm a mess. Plus, I have thick, very coarse hair that is like a little heat lamp on the top of my head during the summer. Temperatures over 80 and I'm sweating, which usually includes an adorable sweat mustache. That may have been way too much information for some of you...I apologize if it was but, I know I'm not alone when it comes to being happy when a little crisper air moves in and seeing the leaves change. ;-)

Things have been moving right along here at Harding Hill Designs and I am excited to be able to show everyone our 10 new patterns very soon. In the meantime you can check out our Etsy shop to take a look at our first pattern series we released. To celebrate the Glorious Autumn Block party we are giving away 2 Harding Hill patterns. Simply leave us a comment and you will be entered. In the past I've said you can tell me anything in the comments to be entered. Such as what is your favorite season, or your least favorite season, what size of quilt do you like to make, are you a coke or pepsi person, what are you most grateful for, what has been your biggest quilting accomplishment...the list could go on and on. You can tell us anything! You can also pop over and like our facebook page for an extra entry. The giveaway will be open until 10:00 pm (CST) Tuesday, October 2nd.  

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you enjoy fall and enjoy the rest of this block party!

Have a great day & happy creating!

Great looking block. Thank you.
I took a peek over in your Etsy shop and really like the "Cha Cha Cha" quilt.

Fall burst looks great in fall colors. I am really enjoying watching the leaves change color each day.
So many golden colors urounded by tans, burgundy,deep reds, and rusty colors. Gorgeous

Sandra Timmons

There are so many endless possibilities for your block. The list could go on and on. I like fall; the maple trees turning glorious fall colors; the idea of cooking soups and stews in the crockpot and you can eat dinner whenever. My biggest quilting accomplishment was finishing a queen-sized quilt in blue and white with matching pillows. I am grateful my Mom is still here and that my husband has had 4 cancer operations and is still with me. That is probably why I have become addicted to pepsi. Still, I enjoy life and all the ups and downs we go through.

Thanks so much for sharing your block, I am hoping to get a chance to do some blocks and share them on Flickr. I also like your Cha Cha Cha quilt design. I hope to be able to do a little fall decorating soon, it is my favorite time of year.


I forgot to tell you that I LIKE you on Facebook.

Thanks for sharing your talent and thanks for the give away. I have to just say: I'm a big coke drinker, most every morning that is the first thing I do is grab a coke. Well it just so happen that this morning I actually drank a glass of instant breakfast in milk. LOL

I already LIKE you on Facebook. Thanks

My biggest quilting accomplishment is that I won an honorable mention ribbon at our Guild show last month! Fall is my favorite season because life tends to slow down a little and get back to routine. The shorter days bring everyone back indoors and closer together. There is nothing like snuggling on the sofa under a quilt watching a scary movie.


Thanks for the block, I like it. I usually make lap or bed size quilts. I like small projects like table toppers for a quick finish.

I like to make quilts for beds -- both twin size and queen size. Many years ago I made a king size quilt for my in-laws. I had family members draw on squares of paper with crayons which I then ironed onto white fabric. I then made them into a quilt which I tied. It was fun to do, and my in-laws loved it. I also made 2 twin sized quilts for 2 of my grandsons. I took the idea from the bugs in jars wall quilt. But for the twin sized quilts, I chose to use prints of anything that could go in a jar. So I had jars with paperclips, different kinds of candy, fruit, as well as bugs. The boys really liked the quilts.

I love to make baby quilts. I have 3 in progress now. I need to get busy and finish the blue elephants because the baby is here and he is so cute.


I've just started on my 'Groove' quilt! I'm making it for my sister's birthday!

Bonnie Larson

Love the block. My current major acomplishment is FMQ a queen size quilt that I pieced myself on my home sewing machinbe. Or I s hould say, I am working on - it is about 1/2 done and i am so proud of myself. I am doing most of it as feathers and I must say, they are actually starting to look somewhat like feathers...Thanks for the opportunity on the draw

I am a southern girl living outside of Atlanta (30 miles east) in a small town. Atlanta is the home of Coca Cola - my favorite drink.


I like Spring and Fall with Summer being WAY to hot here in Texas! I make all sizes of quilts it just depends on the pattern! I have noticed I am moving away from teh earth tones and heading to the oranges and limes:) Much happier colors:)
Thanks for the block and chance for a pattern:)


Just liked you on Facebook:)

GIve me Fall any day! I really don't mind Winter. If we have snow that means I have to stay home and quilt! Thank you for the great giveaway.


Fall is my favorite season I love the crisp, clear, windy days.

Cindy Maske

Interesting block. I'd like to see it in other colors and make a whole fall quilt....reds and yellow, oranges and just a hint of green.

Connie German

Can't wait for those cooler days of Fall and good sewing time.


Very beautiful block! Love the colors.


Liked your page on FB too.


I like your autumn block. I visited your Etsy Shop and think your Sunshine Shimmy pattern is so cute. Not sure if the blocks are really on-point or if it's an illusion but either way it's a dandy. Love that name...Sunshine Shimmy...wonderful!


This block looks like a much easier way to make the Mexican Star block (instead of a 3-way Y seam!!) - thanks for the tute!

I love the colors you used in the Cha Cha Cha quilt!


Nice block. Love your designs, simple, colorful, perfect!

Great block. Simple crisp and fall like! Thanks for sharing.

Your block certainly is "fallish", I like it. Thanks for sharing. I am ready to go to Amish farms and get mums and pumpkins. I love fall. Thanks for a chance to win patterns.

Nancy of IN

Mums are beautiful right now. I know frost/freezing as the flowers are blooming their heads off!
