    I figure you're not really a quilter until you've made one of these "jar" quilts. I've been quilting about two years. This is my 15th quilt. My local laq did the quilting. I think she did a really nice job. The jars all have something different.

    I love it. Jar quilts are always cute when the fabric is well chosen.

    No. I just found that fabric online. The same fabric is also available with a red background. It repeats, but there are actual recipes. I haven't tried any of them, but they look as if they would work.

    I absolutely LOVE your jar quilt!!!! I have fabric ready and waiting on me to start on one. My Mom loved to grow a garden and would can all sorts of veggies in the summer. I want to make a jar quilt as a memory quilt. Did you use a pattern or just design your own jars? And the fabric on the back, do you remember where you got it from?

    I love jar quilts and yours is great. I have some fabrics and am going to make a wall hanging. Where did you get your pattern?

    I got the fabric at jofabric.com. Here is the link:

    http://www.jandofabrics.com/proddeta...prod=fod000364

    I only bought it about six months ago, so you should be able to find it still. BTW, there are a lot of food fabrics on this website. I got the pattern from about.com. I think I can find the link at:

    http://quilting.about.com/od/blockof..._jar_quilt.htm

    I made the 12-inch jar. That's only the block. I designed the rest. I used scraps from three other quilts to make this one. I'm glad you like it. I enjoyed making it.

    Lovely! It would take me an age to find all the 'contents' fabric over here! BUT I sawa small version like this in the US about 8 years ago and have always had a hankering to make a small wallhanging like this!

    You did a great job - lovely, lovely, lovely!

    Great Job! I made a bug jar quilt for my grandson. Those are fun too. That was one of my first quilts so I just tided mine. Fun trying to find the fabric. Thanks for sharing.
