October's evenings are crisp and cool, and they signal the leaves that it is time to change into their fall wardrobe ...
Amanda, The Patchsmith, has found a really beautiful project for us to make during October, to celebrate the beautiful , rich colors of fall. She made a really gorgeous fabric wreath with fabric strips ...

Aren't her fabrics just perfect for fall? Amanda used a 10 inch wire wreath and 1 " x 5 " strips of fabric to make it. (see here for how she made her wreath)
When I saw Amanda's wreath, I immediately ran to my stash , to pull out some fabric scraps to make my own wreath. I am stopping by a Dollar Tree Store (in the US), to see if they carry any wire wreaths. (A Quilter's Mission suggested this store for wreaths on Amanda's blog post comments.)

I'll show you what they reminded me of...

There are lots of tutorials online to help you get started on making your own fabric wreath. I ran across this beautiful wreath... on SewMcCool.com .
Deanna glued little seasonal buttons onto some of the fabrics on a foam wreath.

I'll let you know how my fabric wreath turns out!
