Blogger's Quilt Festival - Jewel Box Quilt

Well - this has caught me on the hop!  I had no idea that the Blogger's Quilt Festival was coming up until I saw an entry on another blog I follow.  For my entry, I decided to go with my Jewel Box Quilt which I finished in July.



It has no special story really, it's just a quilt I made when I set myself a challenge to see what I could make from a Jelly Roll and a Layer Cake.  In the end I came to realise that one Jelly Roll and one Layer cake go a long way!  I made this quilt, plus another that will be published in Homespun next year, a table runner for my daughter and then I gave the leftovers to a friend and she whipped up a quilt for her grand-daughter.  It felt like the neverending supply of Bliss fabric!

 


So, Stats.  I love stats.  
Size - 55" x 71"
Fabric -Bliss by Bonnie and Camille
Pattern - A traditional Jewel Box design.  I am currently writing a pattern for it which will be available for free download soon.
Quilting - As usual my amazing Mum quilted it for me using the Honeysuckle pantograph by Patricia Ritter - it is a very pretty pattern
Category - Professionally Quilted.  Throw Quilt.  Bed Quilt (twin size)

Here's a close up of the quilting.
