I hope you have been enjoying Quilt-Uberfest. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous if I could pull this off. But I have had the delight of working with about half of these wonderful people before, so I was hopeful. And my new friends have been terrific as well! In fact I was the one scrambling at the last minute to present my block to you today.
Before I show you my block and the link to the PDF to create it, I wanted to briefly talk about the line I chose for this quilt-along. I really loved how this line spoke to the misty surreal effect of fall ….the crisp morning…the foggy evenings….the hints of the summer’s glorious colors and fading to the quiet sleep of winter….
and for someone who really normally doesn’t like purple, the chocolate edge that is infused into this line also drew me in. I like two types of purple….this brownish type and the greyish type that has been called Perkin’s purple I believe. This one’s got the chocolate all over it……getting hungry yet?
And finally I bring you today’s block for the Uberfest! In the Corner Pocket !
Actually two different versions of it!

Make sure you check out tomorrow’s Uberfest Block with April. I met April at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, and I tell you there are few people out there as sweet and charming as she is…..oh, and did I mention talented to boot? Well, she is, and she’s got a great block for Uberfest…. And while you are there, she’s got some other cool fall stuff going on as well. I was just over there and saw what looked like a delish pumpkin cake!
