Heart of the San Joaquin Valley

This fabric is only available from Cloth and Quilt in Turlock. The fabric was designed and printed by the staff at Cloth and Quilt. This fabric was designed with just a small sampling of the things that make this a great place to live. It is available in two different color ways. Fabric was printed by Hoffman Fabrics and includes the following valley landmarks: Cloth and Quilts, Hilmar Cheese, Medic Alert, Hershey, McHenry Museum, Modesto Arch, Stanislaus County Fair, Almond Orchard, Apricots, Wine and Cheese, chicken, turkey, produce, farm house, red barn, Mitchell Community Church and COWS.

I picked up two yards when I was in the shop Monday night.
The shop is running a challenge. Using the Heart of the San Joaquin Valley fabric, create a project . The have five categories to choose from....wall-hanging, throw or larger, original pattern, clothing/wearable. Winners in each category will be decided by the votes of customers. All entries must be turned in by August 25, 2007. I'm thinking about what I want to do.....I love to design a challenge!

Great idea for a quilt! I'm a Stockton native currently living in exile in the Chicago area, and as such am familiar with many of the landmarks mentioned (as well as Escalon, which I used to drive through regularly on the way to Jamestown and Sonora).
