    NICE prints! Can't wait to see what you do with it!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    There are lots of nice patterns online. Here are a couple I found: http://quilting.about.com/od/blockof...wer_basket.htm (this one sounds like what you were talking about), http://www.paperpanache.com/free/tuopen.htm

    I see a lot of food fabric in Hancock fabric, I could not figure out for the life of me what to do with it. They had it marked down to $2.50 per yard at one time.

    How cool! Just today I visited my Amish neighbor to see the canning quilt she was making. She had already made three and was piecing the fourth. It was really different. I had no idea that they were so popular. Wait til I tell her it was discussed on the computer.

    Your quilt will be very pretty, I'm sure. As for me I have no desire to make a jar quilt. I enjoy looking at everyone's quilts.

    Now if I was looking at a pantry quilt, I would want to be cooking and if I am cooking (my first? love) how would I have time to quilt? And boy, oh boy, would my weight suffer (more) if I were cooking. Guess there will be NO pantry quilts in my future but have fun making yours. I do like the finished pantry quilts even if they do want to make me get in the kitchen.

    I had never seen or heard of a pantry quilt but I had recently purchased a couple of bundles of the same veggies you posted above for a wall hanging. Your thread made me run right out yesterday and buy 1/4 yard each of all the veggies I could find at a LQS. I love this pattern! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
    Enjoy your day,

    Here is one I made for my Uncle with a very similar fabric pack. It was a blast to make and he just adores it. A board member made the quilt label (center bottom row: Uncle Joe's Puttin' Up Stuff) as jar on the light blue fabric I sent her and all the little labels for the other jar that say "Uncle Joe's".
