    Hi Quilt Friends:
    This is my most recent project...the Bug Jar Quilt was such fun to make and went together in a hurry. I have a new grand neice/nephew coming and will give the quilt to the grand if it's a boy. I have another "girly" quilt ready if the baby is a girl. The Bug Jar Quilt pattern is on the McCall's website where we found the Oct. 15 BOM.

    Happy quilting!

    Had you already collected the "bug" prints? Your quilts are really pretty.

    Hi Moreland:
    I've been collecting the bug prints for about 2 years...always checking out the remnant tables to get the fabric bugs I wanted. I want to do one with food items in it...peppers, tomatoes, etc. as I want to decorate for our State/County Fair open competition building next summer. Now I'm looking for food fabrics that will look like canned goods for wall hangings.

    Thanks to all for the nice compliments

    Found it. Very nice. Did you use the pattern for piecing or is it PP. I really like it :D

    Joyful:
    I got lucky, I went to one place and they had a bizillion bug fabrics so I bought a bit of each then when I went to my quilt group I took my bugs to show my friends and several had little pieces of bug fabric left over from other projects so they contributed a block or two. It is a fun quilt, very, very easy and quick to make and I think it's darling.

    :) Great job! I saw this pattern on About.com too. As for veggie prints,I just saw some on KeepsakeQuilting.com and there is a Farmer's Market collection by one of the fabric companies but can't remember which one. I made a tablecloth out of it for my mother in law who has a small farm. She loved it. Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.
