For some strange reason I have an insanely huge stash of kitchen and food prints. I started pulling them for this project and after digging just a short time pulled out 25 prints. I know I have more than that, that is just what I pulled out from light digging! In the end I narrowed it down to just fruit, vegetable and Kawaii prints like the picnic and sushi themed ones. I even used two of my HOARDED Spoonflower sample prints and cut them up! It was the right decision, I just love them mixed in!
I quilted exactly as she suggested and I really like it, I used the binding directions that was suggested also. I mentioned earlier, this is such a great method for this project. In the detail shots below you can see a better example of my mitered corners, good and bad, which I machine stitched instead of stitching by hand. They aren't perfect, but heck, they won't be perfect once food and drink gets spilled on them either!
