Block a Day Calendar: Day 1
A few years ago I posted photos of all 366 of the blocks from my popular Quilter's Block a Day Calendar (2006-2016, Martingale Publishers). Patricia, a quilter in Australia, stitched every single block and posted it on the Martingale Facebook page. I grabbed the photos (with her permission) and shared them here.

Autumn Leaf is a great block for the Fall. Patricia kept to the colors I used in the calendar.

Here's another quilt that is patterned in the CD. Lover's Knot and Teardrops and Diamonds are the two blocks used in Autumn Jewels.

Here is the Autumn Jewels quilt from the calendar.

And one more that is very definitely made with Fall colors. I've actually made this particular pattern about half a dozen times. It's easy and lends itself to just about any collection with good contrast. It's my Tessellating Stars quilt. This was from early 2000s.

The pattern for the quilt is included. Let me show you a few others that I've made - same pattern that's on the CD, just different numbers of blocks.

And how about red and gold? Can you see that gold star in the center of the four red ones?

This one is perfect for Autumn. Different colored stars with a single print.
OK. That's enough for today. Hope you enjoyed seeing the Autumn themed quilts. Patterns are found on my Quilter's Block a Day Calendar CD.
