Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
i wanted to make a quilt using my fruit and veggie fabric when i came up with the idea to put something kind of different in one jar. then i had to come up with an excuse to do it. so i blamed the jar on my nephew freddie who as a child was always collecting creatures and puting them in his bedroom including rattle snakes, frogs, lizards, turtles and spiders and any other creature that crawled past him. this quilt was born. since then ideas have flowed and it has become a memory quilt of sorts. the fruits and veggies each represent a family member and for the label on the jar their birthdays are the date on the jar that represents their personalities.
