I Love Fruit - Pear
The pear quilt finally landed in Boston straight into the chubby arms of my nephew, Tommy. I started this quilt quite a while ago knowing that my sister loves this fabric range and inspired by a gorgeous board book called I Love Fruit. As usual, I had several moments of uncertainty, e.g. those strip curves were very hard to piece, I wasn't completely happy with my fabric selection for the background, I wasn't sure how to quilt it, etc but that striped bind pulled it all together and I am very, very happy with it. I am mentally planning a whole series of pieced fruit quilts.... you've got to love my optimism.
Now back to hand stitching C's scooter quilt - it's nearly finished and she can't wait to get her hands on it.
