To Everything There Is A Season, Block 5

My apologies for being a little late in getting the next block of “To Everything There Is A Season” posted.  Hubby and I have been camping at a local campsite.  I told him I had to come home early to get some laundry done, but really I wanted to come home to finish the block.  Mum’s the word!

This block, Fall Kaleidoscope, is available on my website Simple Bird Studio, along with Blocks 1-4.  You can choose from having a digital pattern emailed to you, or you can go old school and order a paper pattern.  If you order the digital pattern, I will email your pattern to you as soon as I can (usually within a couple of hours).

Oddly enough, I was a little slow starting this block because I found all the points a  little intimidating.  Once I finally started the block, I found myself thinking that there is not one single thing in this block to be scared of.  Honestly!  It went together very nicely!  Here are a few little hints to help you along the way…

I used 3 different shades of gold for the petals and just placed them randomly.

Next, I prepped a complete section of straw and leaves and left it on my design wall for a while.  I decided the dark green leaf was too dark and so I switched it up.  (Yes, you are allowed to change your mind!)

Once I decided on which green to use in place of the dark one, I completed all of the leaves.

Then, I added the rest of the straw.

And, finally, some cattails!

  1. Hello. I don’t know anything about quilting, but I think your work is beautiful. The cattails, leaves and straw creation is wonderful!

  2. I love looking at all of your accomplishments. How do you deal with all those tips that hang out at your points? Do you cut them off or wiggle them underneath during appliqueing it? I looked through several of your postings looking to see if you talked about it, but I didn’t see mention of it.
