Colors good enough to eat
I was very inspired by a quilter in our guild who devotes most of her quilting time toward making Quilts for Kids. Lynda has made a commitment to donate as many quilts as possible to the pediatric wards at two nearby hospitals. Not only is she generous with using her own stash to make the quilts, but she also does the quilting on all the donated quilt tops that come her way. I decided to check out my stash and see if I could come up with a quilt to donate.
I don't really have any juvenile prints,, but I did find a piece of this fun flower print that I thought would have kid appeal.
I went through my stash and tossed together an assortment of reds, pinks, yellows and greens to go with it.
I cut the flower fabric into 4" squares, and cut 2 or 3 squares from each of the others.
I don't have much large yardage in my stash, so I didn't think I could come with a border, but I had just enough of a cherry red fabric to squeeze out a border.
The colors make me think of a fruit salad....cherry red, apple green, banana yellow and watermelon pink. There's a little cantaloupe in there too. I'm hungry now. Hope I remembered to buy some fruit....
