Basket of Food Fabric + Project Ideas

One of our favorite things about summer (especially late summer and early fall) is all the fresh garden produce and the farmer's markets. The smells! The flavors! The crisp colors! Oh we live in a beautiful world! We know it's barely just spring, but now is the perfect time to be thinking ahead to the projects you want to have finished by summer. In the store you can find out vibrant and fun basket of food fat quarters. 

Love these fabrics but can't see them in a quilt? Here are some fun ideas that would be darling with these "flavorful" fabrics:

 Hot pads! I especially love the pie hot pad. So clever! Find the book and patterns here.

Prairie Point Dish Towels! You could do all the points in one food print, or mix it up for a colorful towel as in the photo above. Find more photos of this project, as well as a link to the tutorial used, at Miss Abigail's Hope Chest.

Another fun idea for embellishing flour sack dish towels with cute fabric comes from Miss Abigail's Hope Chest. Check out the blog for the full tutorial.

 Shoo-fly covers for drinks! Perfect for summer picnics, or for evenings sitting on the porch!

Can you tell I like pretty dish towels? I do! These would be simple to put together, but they add such a beautiful splash to the kitchen! Read about how these are put together over at Fig Tree Quilts.

More shoo-fly covers, only these are larger to fit bowls. Perfect for those 4th of July picnics, backyard parties, and summer events. Find the tutorial at The Sewing Dork.

And to finish this off, more dish towels! I love these cute but simple dishtowels from the Sweetwater blog. The little ruffles really dress this up!
