2017 Aurifil October Block
The October block is designed by Helen Stubbings and is a really beautiful block. The original is made in green tones, but I chose to do my block in another color scheme.
Everything in this block is hand stitched, both the embroidery in a variegated grey floss and the english paper pieced frame in colorful batiks. I love the background fabric for this piece, it gives another dimension to the block!
I had a great time making this block, it is so nice to do some slow stitching, it is really calming you down and relieving stress.
Keep on stitching!
