HedgeHUGS BOM – Block #10

Welcome to October! The garden season is almost over, and I pulled my tomato plants yesterday. We have a ton of green tomatoes now but most of them will turn red over time. And if not, my friend Connie makes the most delicious green tomato relish, so I would have a recipe to try if I am drowning in green tomatoes. Today I will clean up the front yard with the sunflowers. I grew Velvet Queen (a red variety) and Lemon Queen this year, and they are both still producing small new flower heads but overall the plants look pretty beaten up. Twice I saw a squirrel scurrying away with a flower head. I am growing the sunflowers for the birds and other animals, so I don’t mind that at all. It’s mostly entertainment for my cats who love sitting in the front window, watching the birds. We’ll harvest whatever seeds are left and put them in the bird feeder, so the cats won’t lose their entertainment.

As for our hedgehog friend, he has decided to dress up as a ghost for Halloween. That makes for a pretty easy block this month, although the bat eyes are a bit finicky, and you might want to embroider the orange eyes as well, not just the black pupils. It is possible to appliqué them but if you don’t like fiddling with tiny pieces, just simplify the design. As always, the pattern will be available for free download until the end of the month and move to the pattern store when the next block is released in November.

EDIT: If you missed the free download in October, Block #10 is now available for purchase in the pattern store.

EDIT: Block 10 ist jetzt auch auf Deutsch/mit metrischen Maßen im Pattern Store verfügbar.

    Hi Beatrice,
    What a fun idea for the hedgehog this month !
    I’m also getting the garden ready for Winter. The Summer blooms have seen their day and are heading to the compost. Tulip bulbs have been planted 🙂
    take care,
