Let us make hay while the sun shines.- Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote de la Mancha
So I had a pile of reds, golds, and browns, culled from the donated fabric bin at the meeting of Community First! Quilters. The fields are ripe, they said - it's harvest time.
The front and back are both improvised strip-piecing. The emerging pattern reminded me of aerial photographs of farmland.
See the burgundy? It was in my fabric stash for ages. It was just waiting for that exquisite harvest-gold botanical print to pair with.
Like, hey, what's up cheese? I'm that wine you've been thirsting after.
This spring-green patch was left over from a previous quilt.
Making Hay was my first ever longarm quilting experience. Many thanks to Jessica and Ellie at The Cotton Cupboard for their patient teaching!
