Inch by Inch, Row by Row



I finished my second fruit and veggie quilt last night. It's called "Inch by Inch, Row by Row" from that lovely garden song. This pattern comes from Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Road book, and is a pattern designed by Mary Mashuta. It's chaotic and colorful, just like a real garden.

This morning, I took both fruit and veggie quilts outside to photograph them. I don't have a good place to photograph large quilts so I rig a temporary spot by pinning them to the shades that roll down and protect our patio from bright afternoon sun. I didn't take the time to make these look as square as they really are.

Here's the other fruit and veggie quilt, called "Eat Your Fruits and Vegetables: It's the Law!"

What a fab use of those fabrics! Very innovative use of fabrics that I buy because they are pretty on the bolt, but I find difficult to work with.
