Here it is October already! Wow - the year has flown by. The block represented in the free quilt pattern is Blazing Autumn Leaf. The block in the Quilter's Block a Day Calendar is 10". I combined 12 of these blocks with two Flying Geese vertical sashing strips.
Blazing Autumn Leaf, October 5 block
The Flying Geese appear again in two corners of the outer border.
