This month you will have fun exploring English Paper piecing and embroidery techniques with my wonderful Friend Helen Stubbings. Our Aurifiil Designer challenge theme this year is the rainbow of colors found in the color wheel. Each designer is assigned a color going around the wheel and October is Green/Yellow.
I'm so excited about Helen's gorgeous block!

I need to get October made then I'll do a new group shot. This year I'm using French General fabric, starting with Pondicherry and adding in more I add that gold from the "Madame Rouge".. it's such a great companion to Pondicherry.
Helen is an expert at English paper piecing and usually uses her papers that stay in the project. They are the ones I'm going to my Hexie quilt with. For this block we'll use the paper method and her pattern has full directions.
I've decided instead of embroidery in the middle, I'm going to use a wonderful large print. I've cut the background so there is a pretty flower in the center. And I am making the shapes with the two shades of blue
