PATTERN DETAILS

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! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Zig-zag on a sewing machine with invisible thread, do basic machine quilting with a walking foot. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished Quilt approx. 41" high x 35" wide. Potholders approx. 9" square
