A Time For All Seasons-November

Oh were, oh where did my November blocks go???
I was so ahead of schedule...
Blocks were done, pattern were written months ago...
Then drat!
They are nowhere to be found????
That's the organization around here, I guess!
But never fear... the quilt fairy was here...
and things looked brighter in the light of day!
 We have our harvest "Cornucopia" this month.
That's I word I have known for years, but I had no idea what it really met.
So off to the dictionary I went.
Cornucopia definition is -  a curved, hollow goat's horn or similarly shaped receptacle (such as a horn-shaped basket) that is overflowing, especially with fruit and vegetables (such as gourds, ears of corn, apples and grapes) that is used as a decorative motif emblematic of abundance--called the horn of plenty!
Goat horns huh???
That has to be a story in itself!
My emblematic abundance, would call for that horn to be stuffed with fabric!

This is Tiramisu...a great coordinating pieced block to go along with it.

I really considered being a "Turkey" and not releasing the bonus block just yet...
But we are rolling into holiday season, and that would just not right
tee hee hee
So, here you go...
Your November bonus block, "Gobble Gobble".

Remember these blocks are free for the month of November only.
After that they will be available for a small fee of $1.50 each,
 paid through Paypal to Calicojoan@aol.com

  2. still just collecting blocks but they all look incredible. WTG, Joan!

  3. I love that expression on 'Gobble's' face!

  4. Lots of fun blocks for November - but working to keep the squirrels out so hope they don't get too frisky!

  5. Love these! Especially tiramisu...thank you so much!

  6. When there are three blocks and I can't pick a favorite, you know you've done a great design job! Thank you so much for all of them.

  7. Great blocks! I love the turkey and the cornucopia!

  8. Your stitching on the cornucopia really gave it a mosaic, stained glass feel -- it's really cool looking! Both blocks are great ... and thanks for sharing the tiramisu block, too!! :)

  9. The blocks are great. Getting organised ahead doesn't always work. Drives me crazy when that happens.
    Glad you got sorted out.
