I put scraps and snippets from the quilts I make into canning jars by project. Besides fabric scraps, I include the project’s finished measurements, the date the quilt was made, and for whom I made the quilt. The filled jars look nice on a shelf, and I am able to save reminders of fabrics and patterns.
