Grandma’s Scrapbasket Newsletter – Nov 2021

This month’s main article is about Red and Green quilts. This is a funny coincidence since I had just picked up a copy of the book “The Circuit Rider’s Quilt” when I was at Grandma’s Attic for Quilt Club this month.

The grandma Gazette has an interesting article about Thanksgiving, interesting facts from an American life in 1923, a recipe for pumpkin chocolate dessert cake, history of the cornucopia, and more.

There is also a pattern for the Blessings Star Pillow,

a teaser picture for the Crystal kaleidoscope block of the month (BOM) quilt,

the snips and snails BOM quilt,

and Basket Beauties BOM quilt.

This last one is a huge temptation as it is applique. I am a sucker for applique. (oh, and I already have the blocks for the other two quilts)

This month’s featured fabric is Floragraphix V, designed by Jason Yenter of In the Beginning Fabrics:
