    Question about a farmer's market fabric

    Hello,

    I would like to know what type of vegetable / fruit is printed in this fabric?

    I'm making a tablecloth with the Farmer's Market collection but I cannot figure out what is printed on this fabric.

    Any one recognize this vegetable / fruit?

    Thanks,

    Looks like a variety of yellow summer squash to me.

    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I have no idea what that could be. I think I would leave it out, there are so many bright pretty discernable ones to choose from. Peggy

    I think it is gooseberry, it looks a little too translucent for a squash

    I don't think they are lemons since the Farmer's Market charm pack has two other fabrics with lemons.

    But I found this gooseberry photo that look like the fabric a lot:

    Later on today I will post a picture of the blocks I'm making with these fabrics.

    Thank you guys for your help. Hugs.

    it is a lemon cucumber, very good but can have little prickles on it. we can grow them here on the coast of oregon. they do not taste like lemon, they taste like regular cukes and are very juicy. use them just like any other cuke.
