Bountiful Season

I finished up this pillow from Bits & Pieces just in time for Thanksgiving~~ I thought this design is just perfect for this holiday!!

Pattern: Bits & Pieces by Joan “#270 Bits & Pieces Pillows Set 2 – Fall” Kit
Fabric: Wool, Silk Matka
Size: 8”x 15”
Finishing Date: 11-20-2009

I bought this kit at the San Diego Quilt Show awhile back. Maybe its because of the cold weather, I felt like playing with wools a little bit. Since I don’t know how to knit, wool appliqué will do~ I love the fall colors and the pears and pumpkin and pomegranate!!!

Although I don’t have pears or pumpkin or pomegranate at home right now, I do have these Fuyu persimmons~~ We went to a U-pick farm that grows them a few weeks ago, and picked two full bags home. They are delicious!!!!!!! In our culture, persimmons means good luck, so this one is for you!!!!

May you all have a bountiful season!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

  1. Lovely pillow!! I love Fuyu persimmons! Yum...I buy them at the neighborhood farmer's market on Sundays. I wish there was a U-pick nearby but I'm the only one who eats them...

  9. That's a gorgeous pillow. You did a fabulous job, Theresa!

    I love persimmons too but I always find it tricky to eat it at just the right time. Last week I bit into one not quite ripe enough and it was like having fur grow in your mouth!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
