Block A Day

I’m trying a little challenge for myself.  I’ve been meaning to work on the Garden quilt from a 2000 Quiltmaker issue and I just never get around to it.  It doesn’t help that paper piecing is just not one of my favorite techniques. My challenge is one block a day (5 days a week).

Block 1 — Tomato  — July 14, 2008

Block 2 — Second Tomato — July 15

Block 2 — Third Tomato — July 16

Block 4 — Fourth and Final Tomato — July 17

Raw tomatoes are probably my least favorite food.  So it could be that the worst is out of the way.

Block 5 — Watermelon — July 18

Block 6 — Second Watermelon — July 19 late evening

Block 7 — Third Watermelon — July 20 (I also added the sashing strips to the watermelon already made)

Block 8 — Fourth Watermelon — July 21

Block 9 — Fifth Watermelon — July 22

And all 5 together in one strip.

I had a few days away from the sewing machine, but now I’m back!

Block 10 — Corn — July 28

Block 11 — Corn 2 — July 29

Block 12 — Corn 3 — July 30

Block 13 — Corn 4 — July 31  I’m trying to decide if I need to do something to dull down that one bright yellow green leaf.

Block 14 — Beet — August 1

Block 15 — Beet 2 — August 4

Block 16 — Carrot — August 5

Block 17 — Carrot 2 — August 6

Block 17 Carrot 3 — August 7

Block 18 — Onion — August 8  I had no idea this block was an onion when I quilted this quilt for others. I thought it was a turnip.  However, the pattern says its an onion.

Block 19 — Onion 2 — August 9

Block 20 — Onion 3 — August 10

 Block 21-25 — Radish — August 15  I’ve missed doing my block a day because of other priorities this week.  Today was very rainy and it was hard to get motivated for anything else, so I finished the last of the paper pieced blocks.

I love this! I’m trying to track down the pattern with no luck. Can you tell me which issue you got it in? Maybe that might narrow the search.
Thanks!
