Of Peas (and Carrots)

Did you know that if you google (yes, I’m using it as a verb…) “Peas and Carrots Poem”, you get about 352,000 results?   I’m not even sure how many page loads one would have to endure to get to the one that was at the bottom of the list.

The first page of the search results in a plethora of poetry and I was surprised to see that most of them were about love!  I guess I never paid much attention to the pairing in the past, and certainly didn’t think that the next block I chose to make from Farmgirl vintage was a thing you could find in the “Urban Dictionary”!  However,  if it means “goes well together”, then it is aptly named!   I really love this block and had fun pulling the perfect shades from my stash.

Farmgirl Vintage: Peas and Carrots

 

I think I should design a quilt block called “Pickles and Ice Cream”?   As long as you eat the pickle first, the ice cream might still work out!

    • Me too! The green was leftover from a backing I used on my bug quilt a couple of years agon, and the orange from a piece I used on the pumpkin. I thought the green with mixed in white swirls looked a lot like the tendrils and blooms on a sweet pea plant!

    Thanks for the inspiration to try something outside my ” comfort zone”.
