Canned Veggie Quilt
I made this quilt for my husband for Christmas last year. In the summer we have a rather large vegetable garden and we do a lot of canning at the end of the summer to enjoy the fruits of our labor in the cold winter of South Dakota. I used Jenny's I Spy pattern (quart size jars) but added two borders. The first border is green lettuce and the outside border is red tomatoes. I splurged and used by the yard coordinating fabric for the backing, which is red, green and yellow pepper fabric. I wanted the jars to look like they are sitting on a wooden shelf so I used brown fabric. Also, I think the brown fabric makes the bright colors of the fruits and veggies "pop".
