Fruit Smoothie

I've added another pattern to the line-up of instant downloads through Craftsy.  It happens to be one of my all time favourites:  Fruit Smoothie  If you are a batik lover - like me - you'll appreciate the movement these fabrics bring to the table.  It makes a stunning centrepiece as shown here on a 42" round table... but honestly that's not how I use my quilt. (Don't you love that pitcher - it was a birthday gift from my Mom one year.)

Mine is hung on the wall and I love the pop of colour it adds to the room.  The pattern includes simple directions on how to hang this odd-shaped quilt - easier than you think.
 (Just to prove it is actually hanging, here it is shown on the wall next to the china cabinet!)

The quilt is easier than you suspect, using just one block and a very gentle curve.  You can download the pattern for Fruit Smoothie here at Craftsy, or order a print copy the old-fashioned way through my website.
