Default another jar quilt question....

If you make different size jar blocks. How can you figure the measurements for the lid?
I've got the jar sizes figured out, but not sure how to figure out the lid length.
Can anyone help me??

I think you can make the jar, including adding the triangles to the corners, move your ruler 1/4 inch from the top and measure the width. Hope that makes sense.

Jenny at the Missouri Star Quilt Company, just posted a tutorial for the quart and pint jars. Very easy. She calls it the I SPY quilt. Youtube has it. Good Luck.

This is the tute Mellina was referring to

Towards the end of the tute she explains how to do different sized jars.
