    Canning Jar - Stash Buster Project

    This is a block that I put together from an image that I found on Google. I am going to expand on it and use it in my kitchen as a wall hanging. Loved making this. - All fabrics pulled from my stash.

    Very cute! I have seen a half doily sewn into the seam below the jar and it left draped over the shelf fabric below the jar. It is left 3D and looks cute.

    Love your block. You can add so many different items to these jar blocks such as candies, fruits, or anything of your desire. Your block is so pretty. It will be a nice wall hanging for your kitchen.

    Everything about this block is "just right." Nice work!

    Really like how your jar quilt turned out. I saw that block somewhere too and thought I should try to make one but so far haven't. How big did you make yours?

    This is a pantry quilt I worked on for about 2 years off and on. You could make yours into something like it. Or even a small shelf with just a few jars on it. Sorry it isn't a very good picture. It looks like a cabinet with doors on the bottom and a fancy shaped top. I just wanted you to have an idea.I should take a better picture. These jars are so addictive. lol. Mine was going to be just a shelf of maybe 5 jars.

    That is so cute.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I forgot to say how pretty your block is. I took a picture today to show more of what the pantry part looks like. You could do 1 or 2 rows if you don't want one this big. Mine is life size. about 4 1/2 ft. x 5 1/2 ft. I did applique. I like your paper pieced style.Hope you show a picture when you finish whatever you make. I've seen a ot of them on pinterest.
