Default Jar quilt block....

I'm wanting to make a jar quilt using candy fabric.
What's a good place to find jar block quilt patterns?
I'm wanting all sizes & shapes of jars..

Thanks!

You can create them yourself.

The basic idea is to do the snowball technique - sewing squares on each corner on the diagonal and then trimming -
except in this case one makes a rectangle - then sews on the squares and trims them

This doesn't help woth the different sizes unless you know how to resize a pattern. http://quilting.about.com/od/blockof...ar_quilt_3.htm

I had played with a few in EQ - what size and what shape?? I did 12 " blocks on these. I could not decide what shape. I kind of liked the tall one myself
