Broccoli wall quilt, 20 x 28, by Lonni Rossi, at Lonni Rossi Fabrics
We asked Lonni Rossi about her inspiration for the Broccoli Quilt, and she explained: "A few years back I created a fabric line for Andover Fabrics called Cultivated Cottons (which is now out of print). All of the images in the collections were created by using actual vegetables as stamps. I usually make several quilts to showcase my new lines of fabric so it just seemed natural to make quilts inspired by vegetables!" The vegetables include a giant artichoke and and a colorful onion (below). Wouldn't they be fantastic as a set of three?

Finally, we couldn't stop thinking about the Broccoli that reminded us of a tree. To prove that we're not crazy... here is a tree that looks like a Broccoli !
