October is here which marks the start of my favorite months of the year! That time of the year when you can add cinnamon and pumpkin to everything and it just makes it better. Mmmm….
I am still not sure what to expect as far as seasons go in Florida, but I know not to expect any of the wonderful fall weather that I am used to in Kentucky. I love Florida, but I sure am missing the trees changing colors, the leaves falling, the chilly breeze and that smell… that glorious smell of autumn. Thankfully, as I mentioned on Instagram, there are still Pumpkin Spice Lattes to be had, chai tea with lots of cinnamon, and caramel apples at our bakery. To top it all off, I was able to pull together a nice stack of fun fall fabrics… for something… for something fall”y”… something patchwork”y”…. but exactly what, I wasn’t sure.
Then one day this past week, I was outside playing with the kids and it suddenly dawned on me, I hadn’t seen a single acorn recently. Another one of those signature fall things I guess I had to say goodbye to. So, I decided if I wasn’t going to see real acorns, I could at least make one out of patchwork. I plan on turning my acorn patchwork into a pillow, and will share it as soon as I am finished with it. I think this block would also make a cute mini quilt or center table mat, etc. so I wrote up a quick pattern for anyone who may be interested in it.
You can download the pattern and instructions here: Acorn Block Pattern and Instructions
If you have any questions about the pattern, feel free to let me know! If you are on Instagram, share your picture with the hashtag #fhacornblock and/or tag me @bellbridgette. I would love to see what you make!
