Using a 2.5" square, place it on the corner of the jar rectangle, and stitching diagonally across the small square. Do this in all 4 corners. Add a lid - 6"x2" finished for my 10" example.

If you really want it to match, then you need to scale up the jars on the front of your quilt. If you provide dimensions for those, I can help you with the math.
Thank you!!
