Harvest Sky by Aunt Em’s Quilts is a great pattern. Scrap friendly. Unusual. And, it turns out, adaptable.
A bag of scraps had some pre-cut squares that could substitute for some of the pieced stars. The effect is not quite as spectacular, but it is faster. And, sometimes it uses JUST the right scraps that you happen to have on hand.
Also, I made only 12 blocks for this version, not 20, and did not add a border. It finishes at a comfortable 48×60 inches.
This one REALLY IS going to my friend, unlike the last Harvest Sky quilt that was kidnapped at the last minute (by me), which you can read about HERE.
Again, my thanks to Emily Bailey of Aunt Em’s Quilts for a great pattern. Simple enough for new quilters. Interesting enough for experienced quilters. And versatile.
