Garden Bounty.......

After the art quilters left I went outside to water my tomato plants.  I noticed yesterday one large tomato on the Early Girl was starting to turn red.  Yesterday it was ready to pick.  The others are grape tomatoes and pear tomatoes.
I wanted to see how the GO! Kite block would look as corners in a 9 patch type block.  I used squares from one of my labeled boxes in the basement.  I'm sure this could be made more interesting if the center square was made of 4 triangles.  As one of my commenters mentioned yesterday, Doreen Speckman called this corner block "ice cream cone (full)".  She had another block she called "ice cream cone (empty)" which was the long point and then flat at the top connecting to a small triangle of background color, making it look more like an empty cone.

I love the taste of vine ripened, home grown tomatoes. Bring on the BLTs! Your new block is really interesting.

I'm harvesting tomatoes of a fabric kind on my blog.

Love the fabrics you used on your ice cream quilt

That make for an interesting block. It would be fun to see it with the triangle centers.

There is nothing like the taste of fresh tomatoes.

I love that block! How much fun it might be with a variety of centres.
Lucky you having fresh tomatoes from your own garden. They must be delicious!

There is nothing like fresh summer tomatoes. We hope to have some mature on our punny plants.

Never seen that pattern before~ hugs~

It's a neat block, especially with those fabrics! I have tomatoes but nothing red yet.

Hmmmmm -that kite die just may appear in my studio, too. Very fun idea to mix it with the nine patch!
