    Hi Everyone:
    Here are the pictures. I can't wait to see how the wallhangings look on the walls of the barn. I'll take pictures when I get everything up in the barn (in mid-August) and will post. Thank you all for everything. Look closely, you'll see most of the fabrics you all sent me. Those with bigger prints will become bigger fruit jars in a tablecloth to go over the Queen of the Kitchen display at the fair. Feathers

    Those are just too awesome! I see the veg one you were able to get enough different fabric to not duplicate any. Now that is special. I definitely want to do one now. I don't know yet if I want to do food or bugs. Have to decide I guess. Well you did really good. I still want to see the table cloth after you have it done. Again,, Gooooooood Going :!: :D

    If you decided to do bugs let me know, I have some bug fabric.

    I'm glad you all like my little jars. I think they turned out cute.

    Those are absolutely adorable!! Cannot wait to see pictures from the barn, too. You have inspired me to make a bug jar quilt-I I collected all the fabric-just need the fire lit.

    Fantastic!! Reminds me of my days at the fair when I was in 4-H. What a great group we have here to help you get all those different fabrics.

    I love the wall hangings....The collector in me thinks it is such a great idea to find these special fabrics for a smiliar quilt. (Although, no offense here, I don't think it will be bugs.) Thanks for sharing!

    Hi ReneeBobbi:
    No, actually the little spiderwebs are hand tatted pieces that are about 100 years old. I thought they might look kinda nice as a doily on the shelf but it didn't turn out quite like I thought it would. I thought I should put the doily on hanging over the shelp part of the quilt but several of my quilty friends thought the tatting should be as visible as possible so putting it on the black background is the way I chose to go. I think I'll just tell people is is a cobweb...after all, there are cobs in the canning pantry now and then. Thanks for the great idea.

    Yesterday I got a Keepsake Quilter Newsletter -Summer 2008 issue in the mail. On page 41 of this little catalogue it has Keepsake St6ash Builders groups of fabic Fat Quarters called "Notions." The fabric has "scissors, buttons, spools and the tools of the quilters's trade." You get 8 FQ's for $14.99. The order number is 5055. Maybe they have the catalogue online..www.keepsakequilting.com
    Just thought I'd let you know.
