    Pantry Quilt

    I have always wanted to make a pantry quilt - a shelf with a bunch of canning jars on it - but I could never colect enough of the "produce" fabric until today. I have just ordered 20 prints from eBay and cannot wait for them to arrive. I was staring at the pattern for almost 8 years, and finally i will get to make it. YES!!!

    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise

    I was thinking of using Vicky Aljobritt's pattern but modifying it a little bit - http://www.craftown.com/quilt/jar.htm Before I start cutting I will search for inspiration everywhere so all suggestions are more than welcome.

    SO much better than standing in the kitchen for hours doing actual canning! Just eat some ice cream or a piece of cake instead while looking at all those jars when you're done, LOL!

    There are several jar patterns & ideas here at About.com. They look fun!

    That's great. It's on my bucket list too, but so far I have collected one piece of strawberry fabric.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Your fabric selection is super. I have part of my jar pieces cut out, so I'm started.

    I have also been collecting for one of those quilts, but I want to do baskets instead of jars. Seems to me vegetables & fruits would look better in baskets like at a farmers market. I'm just waiting to find a pattern for the baskets or I'll just use the the basket fabric as sashing around each produce square. Would really love to find a cute pattern first though.
