First Saturday in November

The first Saturday in November is always the Church Bazaar. It's a great time of good food and wonderful handmade and holiday items for your buying pleasure. This year I've donated a box load of items. Message Mats

This one was made by splattering bleach on a black and green fabric and placing it in the sun for a few hours, then adding to gold print patches. The background behind the Comfort of Psalms fabric is a used dryer sheet, hand quilted with metallic thread and finished with raw edging.

The little Dream Message Mat is made from a vintage quilt block, with embroidery message and hand quilting.

I've added tiny Quilts in a Jar. The jars are jelly jars about 3" tall and the quilts inside consist of wordings from Christmas cards and of course quilted fabric. Cute to add to a gift or sit on a shelf.

Cookie Jars full of Christmas Sweets

And Art Jars full of craft items to spark the imagination of any child.

Wishing you a great Monday and Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi! I'm a LibQuilter, too. Welcome to our group!

    I love your quilt in a jar idea. It sounds like this is the first year you've done it. Let me know how it works out.
