    Thanks to Moosegirl, Star, BeachLady, Quiltingnonie, Norbanaquilts, Missgigglewings, Tink121272, Goldendog55, Bibliostone, Sulabug, SewJoyce, and Amma. Hope I got everyone--If I missed you let me know so I can make sure you get on the label. THANK YOU ladies for the wonderful Jars!

    I added a fish bowl, some books and a tea pot to fill in. This one is MINE. I used flannel on the back and plan on snuggling in for the winter!

    This is the cutest jar quilt I've seen.
    Beautiful! :-)

    It's going on my to-do list

    Good Job, thanks for sharing.Linda
    I checked out pictures on the internet but didn't follow a pattern. I had to trim and add to even up the rows. I figured out a height-the top shelf is a little shorter and the bottom is a little taller - to give the jars room. I cut the shelves as 3 inch strips and the sides and top as 4 inch strips making sure the grain of the "wood" goes the way real wood does.

    Hens and Chicks....you could make a chicken coop. Chicken wire and wood, it would be really cute.

    I love it so much!!!! I'm bookmarking it when I get ready to do my chef quilt.

    What and where is Sisters? I need that woodgrain fabric.
    Sisters is a little town here in Oregon that has a huge quilt show each July where they hang quilts all over town. I found the fabric at the quilt shop there. (The Stitching Post)

    The wood grain fabric is Modascapes by Moda Classic
    Pattern # 15630

    Maybe you can find it online if your local shop doesn't have any.

    I made a book case shaped into the Holy Bible which took me 9 months to make. I had a hard time finding book grain fabric but finally found some at a quilt shop. You did a fantastic job on your book case.
