The Junk Food Quilt

I really should stop cleaning up my sewing area as I keep finding projects that need to be finished!  This is the latest one I'm working on.
This baby is loaded with junk food of all kinds...sweet, salty, gummy, crunchy.  You name it, it's there!  It started out a lap-sized quilt, but as my stash of junky goodness grew, so did the quilt.  And I love, love, love yellow!!  As far as I'm concerned, folks just don't use enough yellow.

Right now, I'm working on the back and what better balance to all that snack food bounty than....
an abundance of fruits and veggies!  Again, for me, the more the merrier: cucumbers, peppers, berries, leafy green stuff, watermelon, pineapple.  So much good-for-you goodness, I couldn't get it all in one shot (nor am I going to try).  I'm thinking sashing strips between each row, but then again, I just want this baby done!! Anyway, if I can get my act together (and the back together) I hope to load this on my Mom's machine by the end of the week.  Wish me luck and happy quilting!
