At the Farmer's Market: Mouthwatering Desserts!

Labor Day weekend is right around the corner, and farmer's market and local farm stands are overflowing with fresh produce. That creates a "perfect storm" situation--use the long weekend as an excuse to entertain family and friends, and use some of that gorgeous, mouth-watering fresh fruit to make a dessert for your get-together!

Inspired by the fruit prints in our latest Farmer John collection, we've compiled a to-do list of desserts ideas from around the web for you. Let us know if you try one--each looks better than the previous one and we'd like to make one of each!

  1. Eight o'clock in the morning and I'm slobbering in my keyboard. No fair!

  2. I've been drooling over those fabrics already and want them so badly. And now I want to run to my kitchen to make dessert. LOL

  3. This is no way to help us "pleasantly plump" quilters trim down, either physically or stash wise. Maybe the brain power needed to decide which to do first, shop for new fabric or bake, will burn some calories. Yes, dreaming is another of my favorite things to do.
