The Color of Fruit

AKA: Tutti Fruitti

Erin here. I thought I should show some of my quilt in progress -- well at least the words -- before I get the top together. I worked on the words first to be sure that the center of my quilt would be big enough for all the words. I was going to put "Tutti Fruitti," my name, town/state and Liberated Amish 2010 in the borders, but as you can see I changed my mind.


papaya, grape, mango, citron, plum, mandarin, raspberry, blueberry, pomegranate


The only thing I might change is the "r" in mandarin. Otherwise, I'm quite pleased with them -- even plum and blueberry which are a little dark against the black. They will be like a surprise in the borders you'll notice when you're close enough to read them.

Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments. I did fix the "r" in mandarin.

Brenda, the fabric is from Michael Miller's Krystal collection. It has a mottled look to it.
