Hello everybody. I hope everybody has been having fun during this blog hop. I am LOVING IT!! I have been having trouble with my Internet all weekend so everything I am doing including posting right now I am doing from my iPhone. You know if one piece of technology will not work try another piece! LOL!

I am sorry but I am not able to add links from here, or at lease I do not know how to do it. Don't forget if you go to www.cherryblossomsquiltingstudio.comand click on her side bar you will find the schedule and links to these blogs.
I knew as soon as I saw the above picture advertising the hop I wanted to do exactly that picture with my own spin on it. I love fall and falling leaves so it is a perfect fit. I went to a LQS and found a piece of fall fabric covered in leaves. I took a piece of Heat and Bond and ironed it on the back. Then I sat and cut out individual leaves. It took a while. I freehand drew a tree trunk and ironed it to the fabric block. Then I ironed all the leaves where I wanted them. At the bottom there is a piece of the leaf fabric that I trimmed into a pile.
Here is my my 12.5 inch unfinished block. I call it "LEAF ME IN A PILE".
I wish I had time to finish the block but my son and his wife moved in this weekend. No rest for the mommy! So maybe sometime this week I will get to it.
I also have a giveaway. I have a stack of 5 inch squares made up out of my fall stash fabric. I have no picture to show you right now and it is hard to enter a give away when you have no idea what you are entering for. But you will like it and I will add a few extras. I am hoping to have my Internet up tomorrow or the next day so as soon as posting is easier for me I will post pictures. If you want to be entered into the give away post a comment telling me which piece of technology is your favorite. Is it your cell phone, tv, computer, ATM machine? For an extra entry post a second comment telling me you are a new or existing follower.
Thank you for stopping by and go play in the leaves, have some apple cider and hug a kid.
