An Adventurous Palate – Quilt Completed

For Teaching Offspring about Good Food

I finished An Adventurous Palate yesterday, sewing down the binding, and running it through the washer and dryer, so that it has a softer, more comfortable feel.  This is machine quilted in the ditch, with additional diagonal quilting lines through the corners of the squares.  This was pieced with Aurifil thread, but quilted with Superior Threads’ King Tut, since I had one spool of it in a nice contrasting color that works well with the fruity blocks.  The green binding matches the background fabric, a batik.

I plan to deliver this today to the new grandparents.  I’m hoping it’s a big hit.

    Jennifer, it turned out lovely! The green binding adds that nice final “pop”, I am sure that baby will be warmed by your creative stitching – and will be quickly develop a “foody” vocabulary.
    Brava!
