It's no secret that I LOVE fall. The colors, the cool weather, the quality time spent indoors with your family ... and the QUILTING! Fall and Winter are prime quilting/sewing seasons and I enjoy nothing more than playing with fabric in front of a roaring fireplace.
Quilt Designer and manquilter pal, Scott of Blue Nickel Studios kindly invited me to participate in a Fall themed quilt along he organized and aptly named, Quilt-Uberfest! I've designed a block to share right here on the 6th of October. I'm so excited to be participating along side many talented quilting friends.
Here's what Scott had to say on his blog announcement post this morning:
"Coming up this October, 16 bloggy friends and I are going to present to you a Block-a-day Quilt-Uberfest for the fall and winter seasons approaching…..and you are going to love it!!
We are all working with an upcoming line called Sleeping Beauty by Nel Whatmore for Free Spirit Fabrics. I sent each blogger 2 or 3 prints from the line and 1 or 2 woven stripes or shot cottons from Kaffe Fassett’s lines and told them they could add one fabric of their choice. I thought that would combine the individuality of each designer with an overall cohesiveness to the quilt. When the quilt is finished, we will be donating it to a charity for auction, and we will definitely let you know about it!!
Here is the line up of Fantastic Peeps!

Each day you can go to their site and find an 12” finished original block designed for you to create and work with the others into a sampler quilt or make many single blocks of your favorite into a one block quilt….or create a two block quilt…or a three block quilt…you get the idea! We have a Flickr page all set up and waiting for you to share with everyone else your version of our blocks.
So get ready…pick up the sauerkraut and kielbasa at the market and your favorite stein of beverage and get ready to Uberfest with us starting October 1st with my friend John and then check out all the rest of us! We plan on having PDF’s available for all of these as well so you can download them as needed..
Do I hear a Tuba playing??"
Scott sent me this nice bundle of fabrics to create a block with. Please join the flickr group and keep an eye on the schedule.
Beginning October 1st, stop by each blog for a visit as we sit for a moment to talk, sew, and enjoy each other's company (virtually, of course!).
It'll be fun, I promise!
