    That would be a cute way to pass on 2 inch scrappy squares. Thanks for posting.

    Would have to be for a quilter you knew who loves to collect scraps.

    Cute idea! A fat quarter inside instead of scraps would make a nice quilter's Christmas gift.

    last year I did something very similar for my guild gift exchange. I used a group of coordinating fat quarters, 8 in all, for the 'jelly', but any yardage would work as well

    I have little apothecary jars that I fill with "dogs ears". I have three jars that are bulging and I do like the way they look on the window sill where I sew! I can see the little ears and think "Oh that quilt was for Lori" or for someone else and it is fun to remember the quilts that you have made. Edie

    That's adorable! I can't wait to make one for our next guild raffle! It looks so much more inviting than those giant Ziplock bags full of scraps.

    And you could use any size jar! I'd choose one color of scraps for a small jar, so it looks more like real jelly.
