The colorful fabric representations of fruits and vegetables have long been a favorite of mine. Using these fabrics in a heart motif seemed like a natural pairing.

Artist Statement:

“Fruits and vegetables really are good for you and your heart. Last year, my vegan sister-in-law became quite sick with a mysterious illness. I thought wrapping her in a quilt filled with a subject she loved would make her smile each time she cuddled up, and it worked! With this inspiration, I decided to incorporate the heart motif in my pattern for Fruits + Vegetables = Good for You and Your Heart!
