Default We aren't fruit, are we?

While I was in Ketchikan one of our employees had made a quilt that was being raffled off to try to raise money for lung cancer research. I immediately thought about Dimensions when I saw it and took a few pictures to share with you all here!

I love that, Ella! I would proudly display it in my home - it's whimsical and feminine and very appealing.

That's what I was thinking. LOL Also, it just occured to me: how come we're never refferred to as coconuts, or peaches or any other roundish fruit? Why apples? I wonder where that came from...

There's a line in the new Ice Age movie that made me giggle and I was instantly reminded of it reading this thread. Sid says to Ellie " you could be a peach because peaches are round and fuzzy." Ellie gets indignant, "Are you calling me round?" to which Sid replies, "Round is goooood. Round is sexxxxxy." I am paraphrasing from memory.

And back on topic...I love that quilt. Mom and I quilt when we have room to set up the frames and I would love to make something like that. I wonder if the picture squares are from a pre-made fabric or if the quilter hand painted them?

Women can affectionately be referred to as fruit, but when a man is called a fruit it's generally considered an insult... the cruelty of it all...

Very cute quilts Ella!

Love the whimsy of that quilt. Thanks for sharing the pics, Ella.


Earlier tonight I was googling for something else and came across this photo. Made me laugh.

Ella Bella,

Hands down one of the most fun, whimsical, feminine pieces of art I've seen in years. Thanks a million for sharing. Lovely!

Wish I had that.

I'm glad everyone is enjoying the pictures of the quilt. I immediatly thought of Dims when I saw it, and knew it would be appreciated if I shared it here with you all.

Donna, I think the fabric was pre-made, it didn't look painted on to me. My grandma used to quilt all the time and I've always wanted to learn, just never got the opportunity.

I just googled to see if I could find out if it was a printed fabric. It is. The pattern is called "Fruit Ladies" and the artist is Mary Stewart.

Someone's also using the fabric to make lightswitches and mousepads.
