    Really great job. I made one (with some of your same fabrics) last year for my great nephew. I'm sure some child will love it.

    Really cute, just putting the binding on mine. Will be done for Christmas, I can't wait to see my grandson's reaction. His mom asked me to make it, I know she will love it too.

    Very cute but where did you get your backing fabric? It's perfect for a boy.

    my jar quilt is from 2011. The backing I think was Timeless Treasures from my stash 4yrs ago? Sometimes the fabric turns up on eBay but usually pricey.
