My brother is a chef and still had not made him a quilt. this is twin sized, machine quilted and the backing is fleece. Nice and heavy for the winter snow. The second photo is a close up of the edging fabric.

I saw this quilting fabric for sale, but did not buy any. Now I wish I would have! The fruits and vegetables look so good with the creamy background.

Really fun and beautiful quilt dear!  I'm in love with the fruits and veggies prints.  What pattern is the quilt?

Thank you, and I do not know the name of the blocks, tried to find out for you??? It is similar to a nine patch. I did use 2 different blocks to make it though. Then just kept putting the blocks up on the wall( sticks to a flannel backed $2 tablecloth) till I got the effect I wanted.

That's alright.  I think I just figured the pattern out with some graph paper anyways....  I'm thinking it might be a nice pattern to use to make a Christmas quilt, or a "Memory" quilt for my parents' 30th wedding anniversary this year.  Goodness I love graph paper!
