    I have a quilt- as- you- go pattern for a table runner that's reversible. It's called : Reversible Table Runner Too, designed by Karen Montgomery from The Quilt Company. I made one with fruits on one side and fall prints on the other. Then I bought all the vegie /fruit prints I could find to make more, but only one made so far. Maybe they'll get done for Christmas gifts for 2010.

    I made one last summer as a wedding gift for a niece. It was just AWESOME. I used a courthouse steps pattern that I drew myself on graph paper so I could get each piece big enough to really show the fruit/vegetable designs. She just loved it - everyone who saw it did. I have tons of scraps left and I'm going to try to make another one (not courthouse steps though) for myself this fall. Most of the fabric was Farmer John's Market I think. Just beautiful fabrics and so realistic!!!

    What does OBW mean? Just would be nice to learn to understand these. Thankyou.

    OBW stands for one block wonder. It is a type of kaleidoscope quilt. You use only one fabric and layer it in a way that when you cut your triangles, you have six that are exactly the same. Most of the time, people will include a piece of the original fabric on the border or on the back so that you can see how it looked in the beginning. It is a really good pattern to use for large scale prints. If you do a search at the top here for OBW you should see some threads that show what it looks like. I have made two (but they are not quite finished so I haven't posted them yet) and it's a lot of fun and the best thing is that it looks really hard but it's really not!! :-)

    My avatar is a OBW. The original fabric has toucans, parrots, and other tropical birds sitting in green foliage. If you look closely you can see bird heads, tails, bodies, etc.

    I was at a shop and they had used the veggie,fruit fabric in rectangle blocks and bordered each block with wood print fabric.
    They looked like boxes of veggies & fruits. It was really neat so I have quite a few prints and have now bought some wood print that was funny it was called outhouse.
    So I'm going to give it a try and see how it turns out.
    Also the star quilt looks really neat with the black background it makes the bright fruit pop.

    Just found your post. I have loved these fabrics and have made a wall hanging called "Farmer's Market" and 2 table runners with them. I just don't get tired of these beautiful fabrics. Let us know what you make.

    I have some that my sister sent me-she made a bunch of totes and had a lot leftover and was tired of using it! I was planning to do the standard canning jar quilt but I really love the one shown above with the names of the food. Maybe I'll do a combo. I like the wood box idea too, or maybe a bowl or basket idea.

    I have quite a bit of this fabric and plan to make a quilted tablecloth out of it. I'm going to put it together with various gingham's for a real country kitchen look.

    I made my daughter, who loves to go to her local farmer's market, a tote bag with 2 1/2" strips of each vegetable. I had purchased a bundle of fatt quarters so I had enough to make two bags and a summer wall hanging that had vegetable squares around a applique' rabbit.

    Fabri-Quilt has two patterns using their "Farmer John's Market" fruit - and - veggie prints. You could just as well use anybody else's fabrics, or a joyful mix.

    Truthfully, I like the ideas that the forum members have posted here better, but here's the link anyway.

    Thank you for sharing! I have some of these fabrics I want to use to make a quilt for friends who farm and sell at their local farmer's market. I haven't decided what to do in terms of a pattern, and I appreciate seeing your projects.

    I love the idea of a rabbit in the vegetable patch...well, in a quilt anyway.

    That is a cute idea. Or maybe squares of the veggie/fruit prints with green sashing and a white rabbit appliqued to the front over some of the squares.
