Grape Harvest

The theme for our challenge this time was 'The Harvest'. When Judith suggested it we were in the middle of the grape harvest here in the area where we live. I found an interesting photo on the internet and adapted it slightly to fit the 12 x 9 inch dimensions. I used a hand dyed fabric for the grapes and free motion quilted over it. All those grape theme fabrics I showed you a few weeks ago? They ended up on the back and the binding. To see more challenge quilts go here.
Continuing and playing with more SunMoonStar themes. This is only about 4 inches square. I may join them all together when I have a few more. A split backstitch for the orange rays and a wrapped backstitch for the black and white rays.


  1. love the way you stitched down the flaps of your star. great colors.

  2. this is much smaller than i imagined! what a lot of stitching in a small space- love the stars on the sun & the bursting rays.
