Here8217;s a great idea for your excess fabrics from past sewing projects. We want to recycle and reuse them as much as we can instead of throwing them away, so I am sharing this lovely tutorial I found on Youtube by The Quilting Compound. She made a quilt jar block from fabric scraps, and it turned out so beautiful! Read on to learn the step-by-step instructions. Happy sewing!
Start with 5-inch wide strips or you can just sew different widths of fabric as you will just trim them later on into a 5-inch wide and 7-inch tall block. Use the same colors of fabric for each block for a more cohesive look. Sew them together, then press the seams.
Make the 4 corner squares from the white fabric. These squares measure 1 1/2 and 1 1/2 inch squares. You will sew half the triangle of the white square to the corners of the 5-inch wide block diagonally to make the bottom of the jar. Do the same for the other side and the top part. Press the seams down.
Cut 7 3/48243; x 28243; strips for the latticework. Sew on the right side of the jar then press. For the bottom lattice, 28243; x 28243; square, and for the cornerstone 58243; x 28243; strip. Sew the two together and press. Once done, sew to the bottom of the jar block. Then continue until you have all the jars. For the border, use 2-inch strips all the way around.
