    I want to make jar pot holders for some ladies at church for Christmas. Is the pattern on about.com the ewasiest way to make a jar block? I can't do paper piecing so will need to be pieced.

    Would love to know this too. If it's paper pieced we could help you.

    From what I have seen in the past and from the pattern links posted, it is a really easy block to do. Think of it as a snowball block with a lid attached. This is one that my 9 year old is starting to collect fabric for so he can make a quilt top with. Mind you he has not actually made a top yet, but he is wanting to do this one :D

    This is the easiest block! I never thought about making them into pot holders; I'll need to try that.

    That's the one my 13-14 yo girls' group used for pot holders, trivets and a table topper. They used vegetable fabrics. Donated to a silent auction and they brought $79 !!!

    None of them had much prior experience on a machine and did fine, so I'm going to endorse this as a quick and easy block :) :thumbup:

    I think it is the best one I have ever found. No paper piecing and very easy to square up anything that just doesn't line up right.

    A bug jar quilt (toddler-sized) was my first ever quilt. I made it in a class at the LQS. Sigh. I love this quilt!
