Holiday Harvest Quilt Pattern

Janet Wickell
The Holiday Harvest quilt pattern combines two traditional quilt blocks, Grape Basket and Oak Leaf & Acorn. Quilt blocks are arranged on-point and surrounded by setting triangles.

The quilt on this page has dark blue setting triangles. Jump to page 5 to see a version with light neutral setting triangles.

Download the Oak Leaf & Acorn PDF template file before you begin. I've included two options for the block center -- one much simpler than the other.

Finished Block Size: 10" square

Finished Quilt Size: about 55-1/2" x 69-1/2"

Yardages

Neutral background: 1-3/4 yards

Dark blue: 3 yards (includes setting triangles)

Green: 1-1/2 yards

Gold: 1/2 yard

Red: 1/2 yard

Backing: 2-1/4 yards

Batting: about 65" x 80"

Binding: about 275 running inches doublefold binding

Basket Block Cutting

Cut enough for a test block before cutting all yardage
