Daily Pattern: Halloween Harvest

Topic: Harvest

I'm from a rural area outside of Madison, Wisconsin. My parents weren't farmers but I ended up in my fair share of farm jobs. I started in the tobacco fields when I was in the fourth grade and found myself in a similar situation a few more times before I got to where I am.

I've dealt with tobacco, corn, tomatoes, strawberries and melons, but when I think of harvest I think of pumpkins! Plus, it's almost time to go pick out a big, juicy pumpkin for carving! Halloween is probably the best holiday, duh.


Lindsay got a bunch of pattern books in the mail today, half of them modern, half of them vintage. I was a little inspired by the colors in the vintage books, so I tried to use some of those saturated tones in my pattern.
