Veggie quilt

Vegetable Quilt Thanks to my friend Shelley, I have a digital photo of my friend Deborah's 50th birthday quilt. (You may recognize my block - the onions top middle) We are all in a mini-group. All of us work or worked for the Social Security Administration... We meet in the back of a LQS generally on the 3rd Sunday of the month... Deborah was on the RAW diet, which is how we decided to do this theme for her quilt.

Cute! I have a fat quarter bundle with fruits and vegi's that I bought at the Mid Atlantic Quilt show last year that I still have to use. I found my pattern but still need a border/sashing fabric.

The quilt looks wonderful.

I just spent 1/2 hour at the Fat Quarter shop link you had and bought $87.00 worth of bits and pieces! Thanks for the link - I guess, LOL

What an adorable food quilt for your friend. I'm sure she'll love it.

I've seen those Jelly Rolls. I'm intrigued with the idea of buying strips of fabric, but I would prefer larger strips, perhaps 6 inches wide. Now if I could find that size I'd buy them. Have fun with the ones you bought.

That is definitely a delicious quilt! Quilt-as-you-go is my favorite method of putting one together. Great job!

Shelina said...
