I had originally planned for this to be a much larger piece but after doing a few jars and then it sitting in my closet for many months I decided to just make it small and be happy with that.  But now I have loads of fruit and veggie fabric that I have to figure out what to do with  Smiley

                   


and a close up of my favorite jar - I like it because of the 3 dimensional ruffle:

               


I guess you'll just have to trust me when I say it's not as crooked as it looks, it really is straight.  It happens to be covering the fuse box in our back entry way and trying to get a good picture was hard.

That's adorable!  I love food fabric, but haven't had any set ideas for it, so I haven't bought much.  I might have to borrow the idea and make it for my mom's kitchen.

This is a really cute idea!  And as for the extra fruit and veggie fabric, you could always make potholders, oven mitts, or aprons with the fabric.

aprons with the fabric.

Now there's something I didn't think about....hmmm, I'll have to see if I have enough as that would be a good idea!

I saw a quilt like this at a show recently, but instead of fruit and veggie fabric, they used bug fabric.  It looked like what my kids do in the back yard during summer.
Does that make sense?
