Early October Finish

Here is the border I designed to go around my October redwork block. I'm determined to make a dent in a few of my Fall themed ufo projects this month.
And here is a picture of a pair of Acorn & Oak Leaf blocks I'm working on to make into decorative pillows. I'm stitching these using a method of sewing called reverse hand applique'.

wishing you all a fabulous start to October!

every quilt tells a story....
