Yesterday, I made two batches of blueberry jam. I had never had blueberry jam so I was skeptical but…no worry. One jar is already gone. I used a recipe from Pick Your Own. If you haven’t checked their website out, it’s great for canning and for ideas on using garden produce.
Check out the lids…aren’t they cute?
Awhile ago I had made peach jam. The lids were pre-printed with a red gingham pattern. They were so cute. That got me thinking…I wonder if the AccuQuilt circle die is the same size?
After a little investigation I figured out that the 3″ die is just a little bigger than the small lids. I laid it on top and put the ring on…
and I had cute little fabric cover lids.
With a little more investigation, I determined that the four inch circle on the Dresden Plate die will work for the wide mouth lids.
Adding the little fabric on top makes the jar of jam just a little more festive and perfect for gift giving.
Make sure to stop back tomorrow…I have a little surprise for you.
