Harvest Time !

Harvest Time, 52 x 56", by Sandra Crane

The embroidery blocks in this fall-themed quilt include a smiling scarecrow, pumpkins, a cornucopia, sunflowers, and acorns, superimposed with pieced churn dash and flying geese blocks in autumn colors. Sandra Crane says, “I am a gardener so fall is usually the final harvest. A FALL quilt can go up mid September and down end of November. Much longer than a Halloween one. The colors also remind me of the change of seasons.”

Mr. Scarecrow has a Jack-o-lantern face, perfect for Halloween !  He sports overalls with embroidered patches, and a hat adorned with a sunflower. (Note: we're still searching for the source of this cute pattern.)
