The "Good Earth" Quilt - Vegetable Garden sneak peek...


Happy Thanksgiving!  Here is another segment for the central medallion square of "The Good Earth," an original quilt I am designing for my parent's 40th anniversary.


They usually have a garden...it is a family tradition!


It was fun trying to draw little veggies...and try to make them look identifiable...


After I do the hand stitching and soak the block to remove the glues, I will add a little embroidery which should help in the "name that garden item" game...


My Dad especially loves growing green beans, collard greens, and squash.  My Dad's Dad taught vocational agriculture in Alabama...he could make anything grow and passed that gene down to my Dad.

I have so much to be grateful for in this season of remembering our blessings, and I feel very humbled and thankful.  I hope you have a great holiday weekend...and aren't having travel problems in the northeast.

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  1. I have been remiss in commenting on all your updates to your center piece. This one is just an excellent capture of a passion. Those tiny pieces you work with just amaze me as well as the chosen bits of fabric(s) to accent the piece.
