I have taken an idea in a old magazine - a jar quilt, that I had worked on several years ago - got it out a month or so ago - and added additional features. It is quite large.....about 36" x 45" and over sized for the idea I have. I am thinking of designing a series of "cupboards" about 21 x 29. Like collections of teacups, cars, thimbles, etc, with options for pieced blocks or applique blocks.
Here are some pics of the Pantry Cupboard quilt - not done yet.....I have 3-D aspects to this one. The jars are pieced blocks of veggies, bin of applique corn, Texture Magic basket of melons, Burlap bag of potatoes, and a fabric picture of an old cookbook. The tea towels are sewn into the seam and hang free - these were in my maternal grandmother's box of linens that she hand embroidered. I plan some thread painting to give dimension to the veggies and stuff the burlap bag. More to come on finishing this.
