My kind of canning
I created a canning jar quilt using Lori Holt's new book, Farm Girl Vintage. I thought it would be the perfect September quilt to put on display. When a young mom during the first time I lived in Utah, I would always can fruit just as my mother did when I was a girl in Idaho. I can't even fathom how many pears I have peeled in my lifetime. No more canning for me, so a canning jar quilt was perfect.
I used a bit of this and that for my jars but mostly Pot Luck fabrics by American Jane. I added two borders that Lori did not in her pattern. The red is from her new line of fabrics, Modern Vintage, and if you look close you will see that the print is canning jars. Happy canning season and happy Fall!
