Veggies!

Design Wall Monday... a bit of paper piecing while away from home a few weeks ago, I did some to keep me busy on the down times. By hand!!!!!!!!!! Yes you can!

These have a purpose, just not for a quilt.... It's a secret until I give them away... still lots of work to do on them.  I may have messed up the coloring at the top, but that's "individuals may vary" kind of stuff. The patterns for tomatoes are from American Quilter Sept. 09


The carrot was machined - all oranges are a different fabric, and still I didn't use all my orange pieces! Have I got a stash or what?  I do have to change the design for the top. Those seams all come to one point, and make a bunch. (You know I hate a bunch.) The free pattern for Crazy Carrot is from Deb Karasik. Here's her link. if you want to make one.

  12. The idea of paper piecing by hand is appealing. Good to know it can be done. Very cute veggies/fruit. Especially love the carrot because of the string-pieced look of it.
