Absolutely love all your fabric finds! Looking forward to seeing all you make with them. Thanks for sharing

Love Harvest Road!! I have made one quilt top, using the panel for backing. I also have a layer cake still to use. The At Home fabrics appear quite similar in the blues and greens, but your idea for the reds will be wonderful.

I think it would be pretty easy to find a square in a square paper piecing template online in the right size. And if THAT doesn't work, then clearly your project needs a different block.

We have similar taste or like similar colors as I also gravitated to both of those fabric lines. In fact, my Harvest Road quilt, done while quarantining, is posted on Primitive Gathering’s FB feed this morning.

Pretty new fabrics. I am glad your weekend with your Dad went well. I am finishing tacking binding down on a 9 patch quilt for my eldest granddaughter. It will be in the mail soon! Yeah!



If you are up for one more try, you might check out
I bookmarked it a while ago because it gives a chart to make several sizes
Economy block and step by step pictures.
Deb tucker also has a ruler and technique sheet.
I am not tech savvy but I can send you a picture of the chart if you want it


I understand why they're almost impossible to find because both fabric lines are beautiful! It will be fun to see how you use what you were able to find. How nice you were able to spend Valentine's Day with your dad & then your husband! Stay well!

Joanna Figueroa has a pattern that uses a honey bun - I think it's called Sugar Swirls (I seem to have misplaced my pattern). I've made it, and it's quite striking.

Your fabrics are lovely! Fat Quarter Shop has foundation papers for both Log Cabin blocks and Courthouse Step blocks...both 6" finished...that use honeybuns. I'm making a Courthouse Steps quilt for my daughter who graduates from law school in May and have found them easy to work with.

I think you can look on Moda Bake shop and search for honey buns and find some ideas. (But you probably know that.) I had a fat quarter bundle of Harvest Road and made a quilt from it but I've got some fat quarters left if you are interested. Email me if you are! The designers come out with stuff faster than we can sew them up!

You might try the Stitching Post fabric shop. They have the Harvest road in Indigo and egg shell.


For a 3 1/2" square in square you need to start with a 2 5/8" square in the middle.Then 2 3/8" triangles to surround it.


Craft Warehouse is a store with locationWashington and Portland Oregon areas. I also am a fan of Harvest Road and was at two of their locations (Gresham and Beaverton) and discovered they had put remaining bolts on sale. Each only had a couple patterns, but they were different at each you might try calling them. They also had layer cakes and jelly rolls on sale. Good luck. Still have't decided what to do with mine but I have been collecting them too.

They appear to have it here. Lovely fabric. Can't wait to see what you would make with it.

I love the red and green At Home collection but had resisted buying it. After reading this post I purchased the red flower print for the border and a fat quarter bundle. Fat eighth and fat quarter bundles are still available from several shops on Etsy.


Hey Nicole, I have a fq bundle of that Harvest Road fabric, it's yours if you want it, the colors are too muted for my taste. It could use a good home.

Love the fabrics - and wonder if your fit to be geese ruler would help you with that block? After all your years raving about it, I finally pulled mine out and have started using it!


I redrafted this block on graph paper and it came out fine. I started out with a 6" square and drew it as it appears and then added seam allowances and configured HST. It worked. I usually do that with patterns because most of them are too fiddly and have more seams than they really need.
