Grab a Spoon and Fork!

 These are more of my goals for this quarter. I bought this pattern while on vacation this summer. It is called Bon Appetite by Cherry Blossoms. It reminded me of the giant Spoons and Forks which hung on kitchen and dining room walls in the 50's and 60's. They finished 13.5" by 31.5" a piece. I made them so they could be hung right side up or upside down. I gave them to my youngest son's fiance, Rachel, for Christmas. She's a 50's kind of girl.
It's actually much brighter than the picture. The fabrics were a combination of new and vintage fabrics.

 The pattern also suggested that you could make a smaller version. I enlarged it slightly and did just that. I will donate it to my guild for our small quilt auction for our Quilt Show in April.
They were fun to make!!!! I highly recommend the pattern.
