Thanks to this great tutorial and all the questions that kitty1256 has answered for me, I now know how to make these jars and I have 31 of 42 made for the quilt I'm making for my cousin's son.  I'll be sure to post pictures once it's done.

The quilt is really great.  Would love to try something similar one day.  Wonder what I would store in my jars.....

Oh, I also found a very similar pattern on a website, though for smaller blocks, if anyone is interested:

Oh,I'm so jealous.I always thought I would make one of these for my grandbabies...sob.....I can't see anymore! I collected lots of fabric for it though,and wanted to even use the glow in the dark stuff for it..You did a great job,that's a very good pattern to use.

I sewed around the outside of each jar, and down each side of the "shelves" (the brown strips of fabric).

I don't know where you live, but you might try Wal-Mart or Hobby Lobby.
I know I've seen some bug fabrics and butterfly fabrics at Wal-Mart.
