It Is Time For The Foodie Blog Hop To Begin

It is definitely time to get this Foodie Blog Hop on the road, or on the blog I should say. 
That amazing Carla at Creatin' in the Sticks had a fabulous idea for this month's blog hop challenge!


Carla's Blog Hop Challenge: 

Create something to do with food.
It could be anything from a quilt with a food fabric, to a tea cozy.
A mug rug for coffee to an apron.
A Corn and Beans Quilt Block to a drying rack for the kitchen.
Maybe you are trying to raise money for a charity that supplies food.
You decide!  
The theme is really your own interpretation, surprise us!

It's my day to share!

Blueberry Ben's Bakery
50" x 50"



Blueberry Ben's Bakery was sewn using Benartex's "Blueberry Hill" by Kanvas Studio.
Such fun and yummy sounding names for them!

Blueberry Bush Sky Blue SKU# 12635-54

Blueberry Treats Black SKU# 12637-12

Blueberry Desserts Blue SKU# 12639-55

Blueberry Jamboree Sky Blue SKU# 12640-54

Sweet Blueberries Black SKU# 12641-12

Blueberry Hill Gingham Bluewht SKU# 12644-51

Tossed Blueberry Muffins Black SKU# 12645-12



The winds never seem to stop around here, but it definitely helped to show off the backing!


Sunflower Whisper Purple by Kanvas Studios in 108" wide, SKU#9936W-66, 
was a sweet addition as the backing.


There are recipes on the fabric!


The baker, Blueberry Ben looks a little/a lot gnomish.



Applique is my favorite addition to quilting and I couldn't do it without using ThermOWeb's
 Heat n Bond Lite EZ Print Sheets. Print, iron, cut...no tracing!


Let the baking begin!


A gingham mixer would be awesome!


Blueberry pie and muffin anyone?


Maybe just a bowl full of blueberries with a spoonful of jelly for breakfast?


Adding a scalloped border of mixed fabrics and gingham binding finished the quilt.



You can find the pattern for Blueberry Ben's Bakery HERE.


I can guarantee I'll put on 20 pounds after seeing all the incredible "foodie" projects!
