    If I hadn't just told you what it was... would you have known?

    And now that you know... what could you do with this fabric?

    I would never have guessed those were sweet potatoes. Maybe you could make a pot holder with the fabric.

    There was a great quilt at the Sisters, Oregon show. Front side had fruit and veggie fabrics, back was all junk food fabrics.

    Nope....I would not have guessed. Looks like it would go great in any Fall or Harvest project.

    Not from this picture, but up close and looking at the fabric I think so.

    Husband loves baked sweet potatoes.

    I'd probably make an apron. Mary Mulari's site has great patterns and it is easy to follow her directions.

    I don't know how big these are. I just found the picture on one of the fabric distributors' websites and... well, wondered what the folks here would think of it.

    When I look at the sweet potatoes in our local grocery stores, they really aren't this color. More of a light orange, less red.
