Maple Harvest and Harvest Time

Our booth at the recent East Cobb Quilt Show featured this quilt, "Maple Harvest", along with "Harvest Time". Our own Kathie West made the quilts. "Maple Harvest" is on the cover of the book "Favorite Quilts from Anka's Treasures". The book is also available at the shop for $29.95. They are both beautiful quilts or table toppers to welcome the Fall Season. We have a few kits left. Check the website or stop in the shop.

"Harvest time" combines simple Log Cabin patchwork and easy applique for a fun table topper or wallhanging. There's enough fabric left from the "Maple Harvest" quilt if you add 1 yd. black plaid, 3/4 yd. background, and 3 fat quarters to make this quilt. We also have an optional kit ($12.95) of wools in orange, green, gold, and brown for applique.
