I’ll be teaching a new class in August, all because I am so excited to see the return of this fabric! (The fabric is shown on a bag I made many years ago using the original issue of this design.)
I had the fruit lady fabric when it came out about 15 years ago and made our daughter a quilt because she loves the beach. I made the bag shown above to go with it.
So when I ran across the re-issue of it, I was “forced” to buy some and make another quilt.
Because this quilt involves special techniques, I’ll be teaching it at Studio Stitch on August 11. Class list is here.
Name: Fruit Ladies
Pattern: Modification of “Level Up”, a pattern currently offered free here
Finished size: 49″ x 60″
Quilted by: Elisabeth Pugh
I love how the blocks connect! That would be a great pattern to use in different ways including doing improvisational piecing for each block! The fruit ladies are adorable 🙂
Oh wait, I can’t stop myself: Your efforts on this quilt were FRUITFUL 😉
Oh, boy! I understand 😀
Thank you. Yes, this is a great pattern, and free too! It looks harder than it is, which is my definition of a good pattern 🙂
Delightful ladies. No wonder you just had to stitch them!
I’m glad you understand 😀
