In Our Garden Block of the Month blog hop
Hosted by Amy over at
has the cutest blocks and I've kept up with the blocks all year (so far).
This month, my friend Vicki over at More Stars in Commanche
has designed blocks that are all about squash.
Squash is the one thing I CAN grow
now I have patterns to sew me up some squash too.
These blocks were super fun and fast to make.
The applique block is called Spaghetti Squash.
Of course I used my favorite fabric iron on adhesive by Thermoweb, HeatnBond® Lite, for the fusible appliques.The squash was backed with interfacing before the HeatnBond Lite to kill some of the show through from the background and leaf fabrics.
The pieced block is Squash Blossom.
LOve, LoVE, LovE!
(You knew I would)
It has that southwest feel to it.
I was lucky enough to receive Riley Blake fabrics for this quilt.
