Summer Moon QAL: October blocks

Last weekend I sewed my own
October blocks for the
summer moon Quilt together with Fat Quarter

Birds and nonsense. I sew out of my supply and my blocks contain a mixture
Prints by Lella Boutique and Corey Yoder, two of my favorite mods

nice block which should were easy to construct. However, I admit that I was tired and not
Pay close attention to the pattern. I had to dig up the old seam separator
twice to correct my mistakes. Well, we all have such sewing days. once
I sewed it right, I was so happy with the final result!
