    Both quilts are great but the barn and fruit/veggies is my favourite! I was looking at Fabricland the other day ( kind of like Joanne's) but not as good a quilting cotton selection, and priced out the new vegetable fabrics $22 a meter!!! Are you kidding me, I thought. A meter is 39.9 inches but still??

    I love your bright colours! I have a lot of those fruit and veggie fabrics in my stash and have made some small jar quilts, but I like your idea of adding the barn and cows. Thanks so much for posting.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I just saw those flower panels the other day and really liked them and their intense colors. Your interpretation is wonderful. Both are great.

    Both are beautiful but I really love the Barn quilt! Is the Barn block appliqued? How did you do the barn & doors? I have some of the veggie prints and was going to do a jar quilt but I really like what you've done with them here!
