Foodie Blog Hop

Are you a foodie? I’m a super picky eater and my oldest says I have the palate of a 5 year-old! I disagree, of course, but I do have some very strong feelings about things like onions (the texture, not the flavor), apples (must be crisp, not mushy) and pears (taste like they have sand in them!) However, the beauty of food-themed fabric is that I like ALL of it! I had a fat quarter group from our Quarterly Quilter’s Tea that was perfect for this hop. Our theme had been “Fruits and Vegetables.” I used the Stacked Bricks free pattern from over at Christa Quilts and decided to go for a “mushy” look. I kept thinking about “mushy peas” which seriously sounds much worse than it is!

This top still needs to grow a little bit in length and then I may use the remaining pieces for a back.

I had such fun finally bringing these fabrics out to play! I think another Stacked Bricks could be in my future and I’d love to play with the different layouts that Christa provides.

Thanks so much to Carla at Creatin’ in the Sticks for assembling this fun team! Please be sure to hop on over to the other bloggers and see what’s up!

Happy quilting!

    your quilt looks great , I can’t stand mushy peas

  2. Did you get hungry while making this quilt with all these food fabrics!

  3. A fun and colorful quilt.

  4. Very nice! Your quilt looks delicious, and thanks for sharing it!

    I’m a little picky about my food too; I don’t like them to touch each other unless they were meant to be together (like chips & salsa). There’s something about jello salad with gravy that really turns me off. Just saying.

    Cute! It will be fun to look at all the different foods in the fabrics when you have that quilt out. I don’t like mushy apples or gritty pears either. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  6. Your quilt is so much fun! I’m a picky eater myself.

  7. Hi Beth! I think everyone is a bit picky about food. I feel the same way about mushrooms as you do about onions. It’s the texture! Mushy apples or bananas are just nasty, I think. Lovely and fun quilt top! It certainly met the challenge in spades. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. this is so pretty and fun. even picky eaters can play with all the foods. thanks for sharing and inspiring

  9. Lovely quilt, with great fabrics! Thanks so much for sharing.

  10. Cute, cute quilt and those fabrics are just so fun and yummy looking!

  11. I do believe you have all the food groups included on your plate/I mean quilt! LOL!! I’m so glad I’m not the only picky eater. It’s not so much texture to me, it’s taste. Peas and asparagus are yucky. I can’t stomach the thought of eating anything off a cob or a core. I cut up apples and won’t touch corn even off the cob. Unless of course your talking popcorn! Yep, I do believe I do have the palate of a 5 year old. Can I just have brownies and cookies for dinner?

    Looks a bit like a garden. All of those tasty bits served on a quilt! I like to garden.

  13. This is a great way to use food fabric! 🙂

  14. All of the pretty food-themed fabrics. Very pretty and colorful.

  15. What a delicious and yummy looking top.

  16. What a wonderful quilt. I can hardly believe there are so many food prints; great that you had that fat quarter to work off. Excellent!

  17. What a fun foodie quilt top. Perfect for the hop and so fun to look at all the different food. Great choice of pattern, too!

  18. What a wonderful assortment of eatable fabric. They really worked well with this brick pattern.

    I am also a picky eater, we realized it’s very much based on texture and compounded by my lack of desire to try new things. But I love to cook/bake and will at least eat most anything I make myself, so it’s not so bad! Thanks for sharing your quilt!

  20. this top is great for the theme! Now how are you about cilantro?? I can’t stand it and it’s one of those herbs where people either LOVE them or HATE them!

  21. Oh fun fabrics. I am kind of a picky eater too, mine is mostly texture too. I think it turned out to be a fabulous quilt.

  22. Beth this has to be the best quilt top ever! The fabrics made me hungry and I savoured all of your lovely photos!
