Farmers market BOM

Love Pat Sloan's new free BOM Farmer's Market, this was the 1st block "jam jars"

Our Farmers market just had it's grand opening, had such fun finding lots of fresh veggies and lovely fresh sunflowers, they just make me smile.

here are my jam jars, and some of the fabrics I have ready for other blocks. I think at some point I was planning to make a canning jar quilt.

I used to make jams and jellys all the time. My mom made so many unusal kinds, ginger peach, ginger pear, mint jelly, beach plum, blueberry yummy!

Berry picking was such a big part of our summer activities, we had so much fun, with prizes for the basket that was the fullest, fill their basket the fastest, of coarse some of us ate more than we picked. We made homemade ice cream and scrapped the jelly pot to top our ice cream.
