Would someone mind linking to the original tute?

Is this too hard for a beginner?  I sew, but I've never quilted...

The original tute was only for the jar, the rest I did on my own.

If you can sew, you should be able to make these jars and it's fairly basic quilting so you should be able to do it.

Oh wow I love this quilt. What a great way to help your cousins little ones remember their grandma! Love it. How long did it take? You may have already answered this and I will look at all the posts. Smiley

I really want to make a quilt for the three of my kids but want to use the fabric from some of my fav clothes from when they were babies and now some of their favs. I have never made a quilt and it sorta scares me.  Tongue

Love this, book marked for ideas. Smiley

That's hard to answer since I did it on and off over a number of months.  I would estimate that each jar took less than 1/2 an hour to make.  As for the rest, I have no idea total time.

Thanks! I might have to start and maybe I can get a jar done a month. Smiley

OMG, I haven't quilted in years but your project may get me started again.  I love the idea of the fabric "jars" actually having print that looks like stuff you'd find in a jar!  SERIOUSLY, LOVE IT!

I'd love to take all the credit but the majority of the fabric came from my late aunt's stash.  However, some also came from trades I did here on Craftster (so I guess I get some credit  Grin )
