Block of the Month Challenge for October 2015

Here are two more blocks to challenge and hopefully entice you to make one or both of them.  Follow the general directions below and remember - if you want one or more of your blocks to be featured in my forthcoming book on the quilts that might have been made by a fictional 19th century quilting bee or a contemporary (modern) bee - please e-mail me for my mailing address.  somethingsewfine at comcast dot net. All blocks that you send will eventually be used in making charity quilts by members of  the Amoskeag Quilters' Guild, Manchester, New Hampshire (USA) If your block(s) appear in my book your name will be listed under credits and you will be entered into a drawing for a free copy of my book when it is available.  (Don't hold your breath - it will likely be at least a year before it will be ready to go to press.)
If you prefer not to send any actual blocks to me, I would love to see photographs of some of the blocks you make and/or quilts (or quilt projects) you complete using these blocks.
I can't wait to see what you choose to send me! I will begin posting photos of blocks that are either made by my fellow guild members or sent from the Internet via this blog.
I would also enjoy receiving any comments or questions you may have related to this Challenge.


Disclaimer: these block designs came from QuiltPro, which is the software I use to design my own original quilt patterns.  However, these designs are traditional and are, therefore, in the public domain.
