Farmer's Market Quilt
It isn't completely put together, but this is what it looks like on the design wall this evening. I had a grand time putting together the sashing/border strips and trying not the get two fruits/veggies on the same block. I ended up with only two blocks with repeated patterns. Not bad, I think. This is going to be such a fun quilt. It is very colorful and really brightens up the studio. Tomorrow, I think I will finish up the top. I am still undecided about a plain border to contain all this excitement. I welcome your feedback if you care to share.
I am also in need of a reasonably priced source for some hand-dyed cotton. I am looking for something dark with little to no visible pattern. I found a piece in the box from Carol Doak that I love, but don't have enough of it. It is what I used for the background on the Sunbonnet Sue. I need two yards, but can't afford to pay huge sums of money for it. Any suggestions?
Tomorrow, I will be in the studio again. Happy quilting, everyone.
