BQ#3 – Fruits and Vegetables

I have an idea for the next BQ quilt that I want to make. I saw a picture of a quilt made from the BQ pattern in the Fall / Winter 2006 issue of Quilt Sampler magazine. The quilt was from a shop in Tucson, Arizona, called, The Quilter’s Market. I wrote to the Quilter’s Market to see if I could purchase a kit to make this quilt. I have not received a reply so now I am collecting fabrics on my own to make this quilt.

This is a photo of the picture that was in that magazine. The quilt is made with vegetable fabrics. I am going to make my version with fruit and vegetable fabrics.

I had Monday off from work so I headed to Bellingham, WA with my parents to do some shopping. While in Wal Mart, I found the following fabrics to add to my BQ#3 collection. The fabric on the far left is a black and white check to use for sashing the blocks and the corn and peppers will be added to my collection of vegetable fabrics.

These fabrics are fat quarters of fruit fabrics that I purchased at Hamel’s earlier in the year. There are apples, strawberries, tomatoes, lemons, and citrus fruits.

While the clerk was cutting my fabrics in Wal Mart, my Mom asked me if I was buying enough for two quilts. Do you think she is looking for another BQ quilt? It looks like I will be cutting out two quilts at once again–one for me and one for Mom! LOL
