Pantry Staples pattern

I've been working on a new pattern, and it's finally ready to share! It's a set of paper piecing templates for 14 different bottles and jars, and 15 different labels. It's a choose-your-own-adventure kind of a pattern - you can mix and match the labels and containers, or make containers without labels. My favorite block I've made so far is the little red jar of cherry pie filling.

A close runner-up for favorite is the little blue jelly jar.

The little round spice jar is the smallest block, measuring just 2" x 2". I've been slowly gathering more text prints, to make cute labels like the one on the right.

The milk bottle is the largest block, measuring 4" x 7 7/8". The tulip jar on the right is modeled after the Weck canning jars that are so popular now.

I used the blocks to create a table runner, 12" x 40". I used straight-line quilting, spacing the lines using the edge of my walking foot.

This was such a fun pattern to make - drawing all the different jars and labels was quite addictive. I want to turn everything into a paper piecing pattern now!

You can find the Pantry Staples pattern for sale at Craftsy and Etsy.
