Charlotte's Keeping Watch

I had so much fun designing this block for Quilting Gallery's Glorious Autumn Block Party! I have lots to tell and show you too ... about my design inspiration and how I made the block. BUT I am having terrible computer problems today. Good thing Charlotte is watching out for me cuz otherwise I'd have blown a gasket by now and thrown my computer out the window.

I will be adding a complete tutorial (with pictures!) 
and more info to this page so see you again soon.

In the meantime, without further ado ... I give you

  4. I think I just found my favorite block for this Autumn BLock Party. I'm going to make one. Thanks for the information on how to make it. Autumn to me is the weather change, colors that surround us, and most of all that the NBA season is about to start. Thanks.

  18. I LOVE the cool breezes, windows open and especially when I detect someone has the firepit going. I also love everything pumpkin---pancakes, lasagna, coffee, and Charlotte's blue ribbon pumpkin is the best! Thanks for such a delightful block, B-)

  19. Thanks for sharing your lovely unique block with us.
    I have enjoyed making it using hand applique for the pumpkin, Charlotte and her web. I have completed my block by using different pattern fabrics for my block.
    The picture of the block can be seen on flickr in Quilting Gallery Friends and my own ColourinStitch.
    I love Autumn because it is a time when colour is at it's most beautiful. Nature takes on a new colour scheme, warm colours to enjoy before the winter cool colours arrive.

  20. I am a follower that just happens to love Charlottes Web! I enjoy Autumn when the leaves change color and fall. My grandson and I rake them up and jump in them. The look on his face I love most of all! Great block would love to win to learn some handstitching. We just had the Pumpkin Festival last weekend, my husbands parents would love this on a pillow to remind them of it.

  25. My favorite thiing about Autumn is the smell of the new crop of apples and cooking them down into applesauce or apple butter. Especially apple butter! And the return of the grey sky blanket after summer.

    I love your pumpkin. It certainly deserves it's blue ribbon.
    Love your blog, I have been following it for a few months, though I have only recently joined to "officially" follow by email.

  34. Driving through Skyline Drive along the Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park in VA is my favorite thing in fall. The leaf colors there are absolutely the best in the world with every color imaginable. It's very inspirational for fall quilting.
