They are simple and sweet, sewn by hand by someone who had a plan for them at one time. But for the last two years, they've sat undisturbed on the closet shelf.
Until this fall, when the agriculture organization where I serve as director of communications hosted Harvest Fest. We planned how to dress up the rental hall. Someone brought in straw bales and pumpkins, a board member loaned antique farm tools. I mentioned this little shoe box of quilt squares.
Someday, these scrappy squares may be sewn into a quilt, but I think for now they are lots of fun just like this.
