    Peaches Anyone?

    I did this quilt for my cousin's husband. He's are real sweetheart and we all love him to death. They live a couple of states away so we don't see them often. The first time he visited, we found out he has an addiction to peaches. He eats a large can every evening for a snack. Shipping is expensive, so I though I would send him a whole shelf full so that he could never say he was out of peaches. The shelves full of peach jars quilt ended up being 70"x85. Hope you like the quilt!Peaches.jpg

    These are great. Did you applique all those jars or is it the fabric? The quilting is great. I like the Americana quilt to. Love "old timey" look of the beige fabric. Great job.

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

        How clever of you! I'm sure he will love it! The Americana quilt is really nice, too.

        By the way, I see that you just joined us today. Welcome!

          Oh my goodness the peach one is SOOOOOO cute!! Makes me want to jump on one for my Granny with all of her canning. Was it a pattern or your own creation?

            The jars are all piece (10 per row). I made the pattern up as I went. I did applique one jar on the back as my label. I really like how it turned out!

                I found fabric with peaches piled all over it. There is a whole line of veggie and fruit fabrics.

                    What a unique quilt, I really like them both. Have never seen anything like the peaches quilt though.

                              Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing your darling quilts right off the bat. It took me weeks and weeks to post. The peach quilt is wonderful and the flag quilt is great. You did a great job on both quilts! Visit often...we need to get to know you. Barb
