Piecing Together Preserves for Friday Mashup

I'm bringing you this weeks challenge over at The Friday Mashup! It's that time of year to gather food and put it away for the winter. Here in Alaska I've been collecting low bush cranberries, yummy! Are you collecting anything from your neck of the woods? Canning, perhaps making jam? If not that's ok, just do it through paper! Let's see what you can create with a fall harvest theme....pumpkins, apples, berries, jars......anything that says fall harvest. Add some paper piecing to your project and you've got the Friday Mashup for this week!

I used the set Perfectly Preserved, and for my paper piecing I pieced the cover of the jar. I initially stamped the cherries from the set in the jar, to make it look like the cranberries I'm picking but I didnt like how it looked so I changed my direction and put this pretty pear in the jar instead!

  1. Create a project with a "Fall/Harvest Food Theme (Preserves, Apples, Pumpkins etc.)."
  2. Create a project using "Paper Piecing."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Fall Food themed project with some Paper Piecing "
