AUTUMN FLURRIES, 3″ Dark

20 Autumn Flurries
Today’s Block

It’s the Autumnal Equinox today; the first day of Autumn, here in the Southern Hemisphere. Let’s celebrate with today’s block: Autumn Flurries. This is a block has been published twice by Nancy Page. The first time, as Autumn Flurries in the Birmingham News in 1940, then again in 1986, as Winged Arrows in Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine; although she mentioned that the block was known as Winged Arrows in 1940.

There is a lovely Nancy Page quote in Jinny Beyer’s reference: “The wind is blowing all four ways at once and sending these leaves … scurrying and flurrying” (Beyer, p. 68).
