With the calendar shifting to September, it’s clear cooler weather is on the way. That means it’s time to start thinking about the harvest season and canning. To honor this tradition, this week’s design is the Canning Jar quilt block.

Add this fun, easy to make Canning Jar quilt block to your quilting library. Block is patchwork construction, comes in 2 sizes, and needs no special tools.
Looking to improve your quilting skills? Join the Blocks 2 Quilt sew along. Each week a new block will be shared with complete instructions for easy sewing.

While I personally do not can any fruits or veggies, I am always amazed with my friends who do.

Canning Jar Quilt Block

Materials & Supplies:

Now even though I made my jar in berry colors, I can imagine this block being stitched up in all different colors. Think about all the different things that folks can. From peaches to pickles, there are so many options!

Like many of the other blocks included in my Blocks 2 Quilt series, this patchwork quilt block is easy to make, requires no special tools, templates, or rulers. To show you just how easy, I put together this quick video.

There are a few smaller sized pieces required on the 6″ finished block so please keep that in mind when sewing.

  1. …another nice block..I see wonderful possibilities in using it. My latest email from you is dated Sept 2, and has the Sunflower Block….not this post. So I went to download that block and see that it’s not available now. I haven’t received this post with the canning jar even though it’s Sept 4. Sigh…. p.s. your blocks really are wonderful.

    • Hello Kathy,
