September block diagramInstructions

Please put whatever you would like to give someone, e.g. it could be Time to Quilt (clocks, watches, etc.), or to make a child laugh (clowns). Try to find unusual fabrics so that we can have a varied quilt. Also, put a label on the front of the jar stating what you would like to give, and sign it, then it can also be a Friendship Quilt.
Fabric Needed:
  1. One - 6" long x 5" wide focal fabric
  2. Two - 1 1/4" squares Muslin *
  3. Two - 2" x 6" pieces Muslin
  4. One - 3 1/2" x 1 1/4" piece for Lid - AND, Two - 2 3/4" x 1 1/4" piece of Muslin. Sew these together for Lid
  5. Two - 2" x 8" pieces of Muslin for top and bottom

Mark your 1 1/4" squares with a diagonal line. Place at the top of your Jar fabric on either side, and sew along the marked diagonal line. Fold it back - do not cut off the piece of fabric underneath. Add the rest of the pieces according to numbered sequence.
