Harvest Vegetable Quilt

Our family has two favorite places where we take our regular nature walks, one of them is Stone Barns. As the seasons change there is always something new to discover. After a walk through the woods we were poking around the farm and came upon these fall veggies all sorted and laid out. We all said at the same time “It looks like a quilt!”. Of course I had to take lots of pictures. I am toying with the idea of making a real quilt based on them. 

Afterwards we went into the greenhouse, and even the future salads growing there seem to be in a quilt-like pattern. Tasty and beautiful.


  1. Saw your button for The Old Curiosity Shop. That's next on my list for when I am done with Bleak House. I've just read Little Dorritt and Dombey & Son. I love Dickens!

  2. I couldn't agree more! I always think that the earth is very fashion savvy in that she is constantly changing her attire. And they really are all blankets: blankets of leaves, blankets of snow, and even of veggies! If you make that quilt, please post pics here for us to admire.

  3. That is simply beautiful. I would love to see a quilt based upon these photos.

  4. Wow, what a stunning array. I would love to shop there too. Clarice
