here are my jam jars, and some of the fabrics I have ready for other blocks. I think at some point I was planning to make a canning jar quilt.
I used to make jams and jellys all the time. My mom made so many unusal kinds, ginger peach, ginger pear, mint jelly, beach plum, blueberry yummy!
Berry picking was such a big part of our summer activities, we had so much fun, with prizes for the basket that was the fullest, fill their basket the fastest, of coarse some of us ate more than we picked. We made homemade ice cream and scrapped the jelly pot to top our ice cream.

place 11" by WOF cuff piece right side up, pin the pressed 1" accent on along the top edge
pin the 29" piece right side down on top of the trim and pin in place, use the same pins as for the accent. It's okay if the lengths are a but off, you will straighten them in a later step.
Accordion pleat the rest of the 29" piece of case fabric, so it is above the bottom edge of the cuff but below the pinned edge/ now bring up the lower edge of the cuff fabric ( 1st layer) and pin to the top using the same pins, you have now created a tube, everything should be neatly inside, make sure you haven't caught any of the case fabric in the top pinned SA
place your arm inside the tube you just created and pull to right side out , slide your arm between the trim and the cuff grab hold of the end and pull thru
trim off any excess from the sides
Make french seams: place right sides together and sew a scant 1/8th inch seam, then turn inside out and press and then sew a 1/4" seam from the wrong sides.
do the same with the bottom of the case
