Oh Scrap! : Corn

Most of this week was spent working on other people's quilt.  So I didn't get a lot of sewing done.





I did get a yellow corn block completed for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge Garden quilt.
It will finish at 8 x 10"



I am still trying to decide what other yellow blocks I need for my quilt.  Even though the pineapple blocks are cute, that is not a fruit you see in my garden.  But you do see bees and sunflowers, so I think I will maybe add those.

I think the quilt is going to be a lot of fun!

Your garden quilt is fun! Love the idea of sunflowers, and bees. Some daffodils too?

You are right! That quilt is going to be a lot of fun. Sorry I don't have any corny joke to add to this comment so I'll just say I like your corn block. I quit growing corn in my garden because the day before it all gets perfectly ripe for picking the raccoons go through and take a bit out of each ear and then throw it on the ground. Don't make any raccoon blocks for your garden, please!

With every fruit and veggie addition your garden is growing and flourishing! I love the corn! Yes to sunflowers and bees! This is going to be one beautiful crop of a quilt when it's finished. Thanks for sharing a picture of all the blocks!!

The corn block is fun! I think the carrots are my favorite. Bees and sunflowers are a great idea!

Your garden blocks are so bright and cheerful. Love that corn block! Sunflowers and bees will be great too. What about some yellow squash?

Barb Neiwert said...

You definitely need a bee in there! And maybe a sun to shine in the corner and help everything grow :)

You have an awesome imagination. This quilt is looking very cool. Can't wait to see how you set it. A yellow suggestion - yellow bell pepper - but I love sunflowers too. I could see a giant one on the top of those big leaves that you've already made.

So Cute!

Yum...corn on the cob. Can't wait for it to be in season again.

Bonnie said...

Very cute quilt coming along. Along with yellow squash and bell peppers... what about lemons. Ok, maybe you can't grow a lemon tree in your yard (depending on where you live) but I used to live next door to a house with a small lemon orchard. I learned to make the best lemonade because the owner was happy to share his crop. Hum, kumquats? I think the sunflowers would be terrific and bees are working hard to pollinate our fruits and veggies. Great job so far.

Louise said...

That's a great block! Are you designing your own fruit and veggie blocks?

Jo said...

What about the yellow pair... https://www.ellisandhiggs.com/new-fall-quilt-pattern-pear-quilt-block/?epik=dj0yJnU9eEg5Z1JxWlA3TmZyVHptZG03VV9ONVBRaDA2OVVQY2Mmbj1TZkw3TXlyVUozMnNMbWk0SWFucVN3Jm09MyZ0PUFBQUFBRnhxcGNV
or a lemon or a zucchini/courgette flower

What a fabulous ear of corn! I am loving this quilt! Bees or sunflowers would look great.

Such a bright garden quilt - wish my garden was looking as colourful as yours right now!

Adorable RSC quilt! You could also add another bird. Yellow finches are usually near.

Jasmine said...

It is fun seeing your garden grow. I love how they all look together.

Love love that corn block. I grew up in a small farming town and this takes me back to childhood days and eating sweetcorn fresh from my uncle's farm.
