I’m so excited about this month’s block for the I Love Home BOM! There is a fantastic giveaway, too, so make sure to read all the way to the end. You’ll also want to visit our lovely leader and creator of this FREE block of the month, Jacquelynne Steves. You still have time to sign up if you haven’t already!
As you might recall, I’m picking a season to represent each block and this month’s season is Autumn. I LOVE this time of year, and all of the fall colors really tug at my heart. It was so much fun for me to pick fabrics for this block.
Isn’t this block adorable? I love it when the piecing is easy, but it looks more complicated. The applique is so cute and cozy – I thought it would make the perfect fall house block. I added a few pumpkins to mine to really give it that Autumn feel.
The applique stitching is a simple zig zag stitch in matching cotton thread. I added a thick, triple stitch to the windows to create window panes. You can read more about how I use machine embroidery stitches in applique here.
I love the addition of the gray floral fabric in the checkered border and that smokey turquoise accent in the applique. It fits in well with my remodeled living room which has gone from warm browns to cool grays.
