In Our Garden Blocks for October

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 ThermowebHeatnBond® 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.
A whole quilt of Squash Blossoms with the teal fabrics in
 Botanique by fabric designer Lila Tueller would fit in my cabin so nicely.

There is still time to jump in and make this quilt with us!

The blocks are adorable. You are amazing to keep up with the blocks. I have many BOM that are just that are becoming BOY(yearS). Some of them, I have bought and I haven't even opened the packages. My life has drastically changed - it took a big dip down and now I'm busy, busy, busy. I have my son and his three year old daughter living with me. So, I'm tired most of the time and don't seem to find time for piecing. I was co-librarian of my quilt guild and I'm just dropped from doing anything in guild. I don't think I'm going to join next year and maybe I'll go back the next year. My then she'll be in pre-K and maybe some of the drama will lessen. When I see your creations, I want to get back to sewing again.

Keeping up ? What's that LOL! I like what Suze said up there, BOM's are becoming BOY's! Super job as always Carla. You know if I had thought, I would have just cut off all but 1/4" of the leaves that go underneath. The first time you make something is always a test, the 2nd time you know exactly what to do, but really------who wants to make things twice. Building a block is kind of like building a house----you know what you would change if you built number 2 !
