Grape Harvest - Deb

When Judith suggested The Harvest as a theme we were right in the middle of the grape harvest here in McLaren Vale. Although we don't actually squash the grapes with our feet anymore, I found this photo on the internet and thought it was very appropriate. (We have a friend who is making his own wine this year and he put the grapes into a bucket with holes punched in it, put another bucket inside the first one, a plank of wood on top and then sat on it! It worked.)
Lorraine might notice some free motion circles (the grapes) on this quilt. Free motion quilting is not my thing so I was very pleased with the way this turned out. I've had some very patient teachers!

  1. Can you imagine the delicious squishiness of grapes between your toes?!
