Season to Taste Book by Jessica Dayon

Friday, December 18, 2020

 Good morning!  Today I get to share a project with you that I recently finished.

The pattern is from the book Season to Taste by Jessica Dayon.  Jessica is my good friend and we met through Instagram when Jessica reached out to see if I wanted to collaborate with her for the Willow Quilt Along.  Jessica is one talented designer and has a heart of gold.  She inspires me daily.  I am constantly in awe of how much she accomplishes, her passion for quilting, and her really clever quilt designs!  Season to Taste is a beautiful book filled with 12 stunning projects (3 for each season of the year).  There are several projects in the book I would like to eventually make but I chose to make Harvest to share with you today.

My Harvest quilt looks so different than Jessica's version.
Isn't hers lovely though in browns and yellows?  I think it looks so cozy!

I chose to use 30's reproduction prints because I've only made one 30's quilt in my life 
and I think I sold it somewhere along the way.  It was time to 
make another one because I love 30's fabrics!

One thing I like about Season to Taste is that even though there are 
3 quilt patterns for each season, most of the patterns would be great in any color scheme!  
So there really is a ton of versatility with this book. 

Isn't Harvest a cute pattern?
Mine is super scrappy and I was able to make the entire quilt top
using my stash.  Seems like I've been saying that alot lately...
(Which is a good thing!  For me, the year 2020 seems to be about staying home 
and using what you have!  I'm not mad about it, I love scrap quilts!)

My friend Jen Ostler quilted it with this beautiful Baptist Fan pattern
which I think suits the 30's fabrics really well.  Can you spy the little daisy Jen added in?
She always adds one surprise motif for the owner to find.  It's like a little game of
 hide 'n seek.

I got these great custom quilt labels from Border City Quilts on Etsy.
They're the 2" cotton fold-over tags.

Harvest finishes at 66-1/2" x 86-1/2".  

Here are a couple of the other quilts I would love to make from Jessica's book:

Those are just a few of the great patterns in Season to Taste!  
Ask your local quilt shop to get Season to Taste or you can find it HERE on Amazon.
I really encourage you to support your local quilt shops if you can though!
I'm so happy for Jessica and proud of the beautiful book and projects she created!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy holidays my friends.


  1. This is beautiful, Amber!! I have some 30's reproduction prints that I'm not sure what to sew with. Your quilt just shines with these fabrics.

    I am in love with the blue and white quilt used as a tablecloth!! My good China is Royal Albert Memory Lane, tiny blue forget me nots around the rims. I can just picture it on that quilt. Oh, you have insured me!
    And the harvest quilt in yellows and browns, fall colours are my faves and I love decorating for fall. I have two raggy style quilts in fall colours but I just may have to make a regular quilt.
    I will be looking for this book at the quilt store. Even though I’ve told myself no more books or magazines I have more than what I can ever make. But they are so much fun to look at, admire and dream of making one day.

    1. Books are such a good deal though! Ha ha! I am an enabler!

  3. Beautiful quilt and very inspiring. I bought the book just from seeing your Harvest on IG. 30’s repro is so pretty, I love the colours. Great job! And thanks for answering my question on IG. xx

    1. Thank you for your kind words! I think you'll really enjoy Jessica's book!

  4. I'm enjoying Jessica's book and love your version of the Harvest quilt! One question about your labels, are you really ordering them from Australia? If yes, how long for the order to arrive at your home? TIA.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      No I'm not ordering them from Australia. If you click the link I provided above it will take you to Border City Quilts (which is now called Ever Emblem) on Etsy. They're from Michigan.

      Take care!
