Eat Your Veggies
Quilt I made for local quilt guild trading bags challenge Spring 2005 (see entry below for more info. on trading bags). That is me on the left in the green and the quilt owner Monica on the right. She gave me a lot of vegetable fabrics to work with and I rose to the challenge. I tried a new technique: I used small real vegetables & fabric paints to stamp the words. The O is a cucumber slice, V is a snap pea, I is baby carrots, etc. Scanned in vintage seed packets and printed on treated fabric. I hand appliqued the bunny and used piecing & applique for the garden angel. I added green rickrack with the binding for extra pizzazz. What fun but hard to give it up.
