|My "canning jar" quilt won second place in the county fair!|
This is a FUN project for you to try...a canning jar quilt! I thought it would be easy to collect lots of "food" fabric...but, that was the hard part :) Mine even has some peeps and candy canes I found online on Etsy. Some of the fabric I found in the hills of West VA.
I actually traced a canning jar that I had, then "shortened" the pattern for the smaller jars. I made the lids out of shiny ironing board fabric. The cupboard I did freehand by looking at one we have in our kitchen.
As a final touch, I added "blank" blue and red ribbons to make it look like the fruit or vegetable won at the fair.
Then, I did a heavy free motion quilting with my long arm machine to try and make them pop out. The only thing that would make this better is if were scratch and sniff! Ha ha!
