These little carrots are going to be a part of my challenge quilt for our quilt show in May this year. Our theme is "Victory Gardens" - my quilt has 3D aspects and this is just one of the pieces that will be on it. I am really excited to see the final project because when I found this poster that I am trying to recreate I immediately saw this one part in my mind and after making these little carrots it is really starting to come to life. I have most of the top done.
The carrots were adapted from Crabapple's pattern which I reduced in size by 60% so they are very small. The carrot part without the leaf is like 3 1/2 inches long and maybe 3/4 inch to 1/2 inch wide at top. I will have other veggies too and will post a complete photo of the quilt along with the original poster that I got my inspiration from when I am done.
