Things you never knew you needed, OR ...   General Discussion

... a new gift idea for someone who CANS lots of food in the Summer - or any time of year, really.

This is one of my new quilting friends, Shirley, who made this.  She said "My daughter used to tell me 'Mom, I need a dozen cupcakes for school tomorrow.'  Now that she is older, she tells me 'Mom, I need you to make a CANNING MAT as a shower gift tomorrow'."  If she hadn't told us what it is, I would have thought a doll quilt or an extra-large placemat, or a table topper.  But a CANNING MAT?  Cute idea.  I never would have thought of that, and would have just used an old towel.

No, *I* didn't do it - my friend Shirley did it.  This was her show & tell at our last quilt club meeting.
