This week on Wednesday Wait Loss, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving and harvest quilts. Thanksgiving is a big holiday here in the states, and to us it is a celebration of food and family, featuring turkeys, corn, bread stuffing, cranberries, pumpkins and other foods harvested in the fall. We also celebrate the American Indian at Thanksgiving, without who’s help the first pioneers would never have made it through those difficult first winters in a new land. Most cultures celebrate harvest time with some kind of festival, and I’d love to hear stories about that as well!
If you can think of a way that your quilt is linked to harvest time or Thanksgiving, link it up and you’ll get two chances to win an Island Batik Stash Builder—a collection of 2-1/2” batik strips. Link up any other quilt and you get one chance to win. Be sure to share stories of how you celebrate harvest time where you live!
Because of cost, the fabric giveaway is open to US residents only. If you win and you don’t live in the US, I will let you choose a PDF pattern from my shop as your prize.
To get you in the mood, here are some fall harvest quilts
