2013 NewFO Challenge - October Update

I ran across a picture of Tumbling Leaves that I really liked.  It reminded me of all the colors of the hardwoods back east in the fall.  I'd like to make a wall hanging to hang above our love seat.

I found the pattern for it in allpeoplequilt, however, I didn't follow the pattern because I planned on using fabric from my stash, that was already cut into strips I wanted to use.  So I started to work on the leaves.

I put them all together and added a narrow inner border, but haven't decided on a border just yet.

While trying to decide what fabric to use for the border on my leaves wall hanging, I decided to finish up the work on the tote bag designed by Gudrun Erla of G.E. Designs, that I had started last month.

It turned out a bit bigger than I thought it would, but I really like it how it turned out with the Riley Blake Snug as a Bug fabric.  I'll be able to stop carrying multiple bags when I go out!   Visit Barbara over at Cat Patches and see what others have started this month.  Happy quilting everyone!
