You know those quirky roadside attractions that we see and say someday we will stop? Well, we did it! We stopped. Last week my husband I took a three day trip across Kansas specifically to go to some of those curious attractions. I have stories to tell and pictures to show but today is Design Wall Monday so here’s what’s on my design wall – ice cream cones!
I’m participating in a row exchange with a group of ladies in my quilt guild. We are supposed to make 6 rows, each the same, and we’ll swap and get 6 rows, each different. The only guideline, besides the theme of summer, was that the rows must be 48″ finished. Here’s a little picture of my full row:
That’s an 8″ block – I found the pattern on my EQ program. It was fun finding the right fabrics for the cones (printed basket weave to the rescue!) and deciding which 6 flavors of ice cream I would stitch. I ended up with Mocha, Strawberry/Blueberry Cheesecake, Butterscotch Ripple, Chocolate Mint Chip, Berry/Cherry Swirl, and French Vanilla. (Note: you will not find any of those flavors in my freezer – only on my design wall!)
The Real Deal! Lemon Ice-box Ice Cream on a sugar cone.
Oh wait! I think I have flavor that in fabric! I’ll never look at my stash the same way.
