Do you remember the blue canning jars? Actually any canning jars make me think about helping my mother can veggies and meat (chicken and beef) when I was a kid growing up in Minnesota. I did some canning of my own for several years - mostly pickles. I've quit gardening in recent years, and that ended the canning too. But when I saw this fabric I just had to have it.
This is a Timeless Treasures print that I found in the only quilt shop I visited while back in Minnesota last week on vacation. The Gathering Friends shop in Bird Island is definitely one worth the stop. They feature lots of their own patterns and a wonderful selection of fabrics. This one just jumped into my hands. And yesterday after my husband left for a business trip (code for a week of golf with clients) - I headed to my sewing room for some fun of my own. This 60 degree runner was the first result and I have enough left to make another, or make something else.
