This is the second piece that I entered in the 'From Farm to Fabric' AMB contest. For many years our farm (and several in the Valley) grew vegetables for Beachnut Baby Food - until the local plant shut down. Peas, Beans, Carrots, and Corn were all up and down the Valley. So I chose the block 'Corn and Beans' to represent our farm.
This piece was almost thrown in the bin - remember when I was upset with a piece being horribly scorched? This was it! Right down the center of the whole thing. I had wanted this to be quilted beautifully by Sue Daurio - we even conversed on this project - then the disaster of all disasters.
Finally determined, I took the piece apart and replaced all the scorched sections. Being short on entry time, I just used my serpentine to finish it off. Would have loved to have had this little quilt done the way I envisioned, but sometimes life throws you a curve ball - we have to grow from it.
