Jars of Love

I saw the Jars of Love pattern on the internet a few months ago, and I have wanted to make it ever since.

It was designed for the Valentine Quilt Block Series at Thermoweb.

I decided that if I were ever going to make this sweet little block, then I would just have to take the time and do it.

So I did.

A view of the back…just to show that it is all machine appliqued:

  1. Hi Laura! These are just SO darn cute. I love everything about them. The fabric you chose is spot on, and that last picture of the closeup of the heart is just endearing. LOVE them. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Thank you, Roseanne! I wish I could say that it was my idea, but I fell in love with the block design…same as you. I think this block would look great in a multitude of color schemes. It was a fun project to do!

  2. This is so cute! I clicked on photos for more detail…looks like you used mostly blanket stitching for the appliques? Very effective and one I can do with my machine, too!
    Did you choose the fabrics? Also, wondering: dimensions of finished quilt?
    And of course I stand in awe of anyone who does FMQ no matter the size of the piece…
    Great job, Laura!

    • Yes, Laura…that is right…I like the blanket stitch for applique. If I want the stitching to be invisible, then I will use a tiny zig-zag, or a blind hem stitch with a 100 wt. thread, or monopoly.

      I chose the fabrics from my scraps. I cut the background about 12-1/2″ and then squared it to about 11″ after quilting. The pattern says it is 10-1/2″ unfinished.

      Thanks for the compliments! πŸ™‚ I had fun! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much!

      I did have a date with Jack the Ripper when I realized that the tension wasn’t right for my fmq! I should’ve have tested it before I started quilting…I know better. Ha, ha! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Kathy. I have bought a small quilt holder for it, and I am going to display it somewhere in my living room…whenever I get around to painting the living room that is. πŸ™‚

    • Painting the living room is on my fall list of things to do. When that is done, I will find a spot in the room to display it. I have already purchased a display hanger for it. πŸ™‚
