Tossed Salad Quilt


Here is a preview of my Tossed Salad Quilt. It still needs the binding, but I'll show part of it anyway. This quilt is for ME. It started as a Block Lotto for one of my quilting groups about a year and a half ago or so. We were to make the wonky log cabin type blocks in colors that made of think of a tossed salad, mostly greens with touches of other colors. I had so much fun making these blocks that I got way carried away. In the end, I was not able to go to the meeting where the blocks would be raffled off. Instead of sending them with someone else, decided to keep them for myself! This quilt is the result. I love the colors in it. Perhaps I got a little carried away with too much purple in it, but since purple/green is my favorite combination, thats okay!!

That's a great way to choose fabrics for a quilt. Purple cabbage and beets in amongst the lettuce - wonderful.

this is a beautiful quilt top! I love the purple fits right in as purple edged lettuce or cabbage!
