October – We Be With It – Walk in the woods Block

For my “We Be With It” Flickr.com group this month, I am the hostess.

Fall is my favorite time of the year – I love the crisp air in the morning & evenings, the warm sunshine during the day, and the cool nights make for great snuggling time with your honey!

So, for my block this month I have chosen the Shattered Chevron Block pattern and I am calling it “A Walk in the Woods”.  walkinthewoodsThe color palette I have chosen is black, grey, brownish for the middle chevrons (representing a path – so think rocks & dirt), and the long top and bottom pieces I would like fall foliage colors (muted yellows & greens, red, orange, brown – think fall colors).  In the tutorial for the Broken Chevrons pattern that I am referencing, they have you put a white border around the block, please do not do this. The pattern creates a 10″ (10.5″ unfinished) square.

I ran out of time last month, so I didn’t get a chance to make up a couple of actual blocks as examples, I will do that by this weekend. I hope that the illustration I have above will help you to understand my vision.
