How long did it take?

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.

I can't believe I'm doing this because I wasn't going to make another claim but I guess I'm addicted!

I claim Mlsocci74 for:

I would love some fabric in fun small patterns (for my hair ponies).

This is my 7th claim (4 received, 2 mailed)

I live in Alberta, Canada.

Orange cotton fabric that's not too girly.  I'm starting to collect fabric to make my oldest son a quilt and orange is his favorite color - FQ minimum/piece, please

Cotton fabric with trumpets and/or clarinets on it - 1/2 yard minimum, please

Laurel Burch's Hearts and Hummingbirds fabric in lavender - 1/2 yard minimum, please

A candy goodie box (this would be especially fun if you live in a non-North American country.)  I've had 2 such packages before and totally loved them but now I'm out so I'd love more.  No chocolate please as I'm allergic to it.  A few things I like are sour candy, chewy candy, dutch licorice but I won't turn other kinds away 

Some tea towels with toppers on them so I can hang them from my stove.  Sewn, knit or crochet toppers are great and any color except black for the toppers and white for the tea towels.

I have plans to make this doll http://www.paradisedolls.com/p083.html (except mine will have silver accents rather than gold) and I'm still in the collecting stage so, I'm looking for:
     - any silver charms that would suit this dress (such as scissors, brush, mirror, etc.)
     - silver old fashioned buttons with pearls in the center,

Draft stopper - either a whimsical snowman like this:  http://www.nextag.com/Whimsical-Draft-Stoppers-from-543346002/prices-html?nxtg=e9150a1c0521-B41449EF57A81ED1 or a more plain one like this:  http://www.improvementscatalog.com/product/id/101933.do but in a nice bright material (or material with snowmen or snowflakes on it.  I'm not looking for someone to buy these ones I'm showing, they are just examples of what I'm looking for - it's for my back door so would need to be long enough to block a standard door.

Cross stitch picture featuring a tulip or summer flowers (not too small, please)

Winnie the Pooh, Tigger or Eyeore crocheted in thread (I already have Piglet and he's getting lonely)

I have a very small wist list but feel free to check it out!

A fabric carrier for either a 9x13 pan or a round casserole dish.

I'm looking for something to hang from my gold chain - either a heart, a ring circled with 'diamonds', or a sandal - I don't want charms, I'd rather have something that I can just put the chain through and it would hang loose (hopefully that makes sense - I've seen the diamond ring but it was in silver)  This website:  http://pubcan.fifthavenuecollection.com/shopping/Gallery/Gallery.asp?Gallery=Neckpieces&Page=11&Product=2124 gives an example of the sandal.

An amigurumi teddy bear (really small), penguin or pig (small)

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.

okay, reason I asked is b/c I want to make one...eventually lol!

I'm planning to make another one (smaller) with fruit and veggies and I am going to quilt around each jar.

So how did you quilt it?

Not with as much quilting as I probably should have!  I stitched in the ditch on both side of all dark lines and then around 3 or 4 jars per line.

I just sent my info. in - now I better decide what my guy's going to be.  I already have a name, now I need a body  Grin

I HAVE to know where you picked up that button print!

It came from my aunt's stash so I have no idea.

And I love the fabric you used for the lids to the jars!

I couldn't believe when I saw that in the fabric store - it reminded me of the jar lids I had at home.  I made sure to buy lots because I have another jar quilt planned and wanted some for that too.

Let me start out by saying a huge THANKS to kitty1256 for all the help she gave me when I first started this quilt last fall.  Not only for the great tutorial but also for answering all my extra questions  Grin

This is the second of two quilts I was asked to make for my cousin's sons.  The majority of the material came from his late mother's stash and it's meant to be a keepsake reminder of the boys' grandma.

My original idea was to make an eye spy quilt but when I saw kitty1256's jar quilt, I knew I just had to incorporate the eye spy and jars together.

The little guy this was made for has Canadian parents but was born in the US so I had to include material from both countries.  Not sure if you can pick them out or not but there is one jar full of maple leaves and another full of the American flag.  There are also parrots, frogs, bugs, crayons, eyes, stars, fishing hooks, etc.


One of my favorite jars:

Great job craftADDchick - I recognize some material on him!

I have mine about 3/4 done but keep doing other projects instead because, like you, I have my doubts about what it will look like.  But seeing yours, I just may get inspired to finish mine.

How about anyone else?
