small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Zig-zag on a sewing machine with invisible thread, do basic machine quilting with a walking foot.

Pattern Description:

For many years in the quilt world, fabrics displaying unhealthy food treats seemed easier to find than healthier fare. So I have been very happy in recent years, when fabric companies began putting out luscious, larger-than-life, realistic depictions of fruits and vegetables.

I used a bushel of these kinds of fabrics to make this wall quilt and coordinating potholders. And although the fabrics I used include blueberries, these projects are a lot easier to make than pie! They're mostly fused, with stitching around simple shapes, and wavy-line straight machine quilting.

The resulting works of art can hang on a kitchen wall or even a refrigerator, as a mouth-watering enticement to eat right!

Warning: Working on these projects before grocery shopping has been known to cause people to purchase and consume unusually large quantities of fresh fruits and veggies. This can only benefit you and your family!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished Quilt approx. 41" high x 35" wide. Potholders approx. 9" square

Materials:

  • Zig-zag capable sewing machine with walking foot and applique foot; Fruit and vegetable fabrics, a fat or regular quarter of each - maximum of 16 different prints, minimum of 4 different prints, if you don't mind repeating fabrics in the central circle; Background fabric, light green, 1.5 yards; Backing fabric, your choice, 1.5 yards; a spool of 'invisible' clear nylon thread; 2.5 yards of medium-weight paper-backed fusible web, like HTC Trans-web or Wonder Under; Quilt batting, 45" x 40" for the quilt, plus 22" x 22" per potholder

  • Nonstick applique press sheet, or many pieces of clean scrap paper; Cardboard for making templates (optional); Temporary marker such as water soluble blue pen, to draw quilting lines (optional); Fray stopping liquid and coordinating ribbon for potholders only
