Harvest of Hope Class is in Session

Hello Everyone,
Just a few pictures from the Harvest of Hope class yesterday.  The girls have been busy over the last month creating beautiful visions of Autumn.

I love how Barbara created the straw on her scarecrow.  Great fence fabric too!

The straw was very realistic.

Wouldn't an orchard full of these apples be beautiful?  Are you reading this Candace from Squash House Quilts?  I would love to have you and Mr. Squash grow some checked apples next to your plaid pumpkins next year.  You'd make a fortune!

White pumpkins, purple pumpkins, green pumpkins, and orange pumpkins filled the classroom.

The girls have been having fun selecting the fabrics for their quilts.  Some purchased kits and some are "winging it" on their own, and they are doing a fantastic job.  I will be putting more kits together soon down at the shop.  I'll let you know when they are ready for purchase.

Then you can start planting seeds and start working on your "Harvest" for next year.

I'm off to the shop this morning for the day, then Sew'n Wild Oaks class tomorrow.  Busy week in the making here!  Make your day and week count.


  1. Hey Sue! She's making pumpkins without us again! I did a block with a chicken in its nest once and added loose straw for fun! Good idea for Mr. H.H. Scarecrow!

  2. Looks like Mr. Squash and I need to spend some time this winter coming up with the hybrid, plaid appleseed! You know Mr. Squash majored in Agriculture - he just never knew he'd be inventing fruit and produce for quilters ;>) Brilliant! We might even share the fortune with you, Lynn! Think of all the fabric we could buy!!

  3. This looks like so much fun . . . love the fabrics :)
