Autumn RR, Another Block Done

Amidst getting ready for the CQ Adventure in Connecticut in two weeks, I still have round robin commitments.  So I am trying to knock those out in the next few days.  And since I love the autumn theme so much, the Autumn RR block was more a matter of limiting ideas rather than trying to come up with some.

This is my work on Dee’s block.  I LOVED her colors and fabrics.  Leaves are one of my favorite, if not my very favorite fall motifs, so I tried to include a lot of them...

These are all four of the completed blocks so far.  The stitchers are:
Top:  L - Helina (Finland)  R - Cathy (Utah, US)
Bottom:  :  L -  Rita (Kansas, US)  R -  Lorrie (Canada)

I love the angular elements of the blocks in the total composition, and yet each block has swirls or curved leaves or spider webs to offset the straight lines.  Maybe I should “forget” to mail these?  LOL - just kidding!

I love your autumn blocks myself. In fact, I have a picture of one of your autumn themes blocks in my inspiration's got the most beautiful stalk of wheat made out of silk ribbon. These are just as lovely.
