Jewel Box

Here is the Jewel Box I made for my niece for her high school graduation. I still have to get a label on it and the quilt to her. I am going to make a label today! I cut out all the pieces, except the border with my Accuquilt Studio. this is an all scrappy quilt, with the background the same fabric. I just love it. I know I will have to make another one to keep. But, first I have to finish that Omigosh.
Maybe I am caught up a little. maybe.
happy quilting, Vicki


4 patches are finished, all 880 of them and maybe a few extra. The next step is to make these the centers of square in a square blocks that finish 2 inches. Here is one I did to see what they would look like. That is a quarter by it. Small!!! Omigosh. After that I have to make 880 half square triangles and the take all these parts and make Shoo Fly blocks for the alternate block. Months and months to go, haha,hehe, hoho. Yes, I am losing it.


I have been missing for awhile. I am still here. Been busy. Went to the mountains, in NC, to visit my friend GA. We shopped and sewed, till we dropped. Had a great time. On the way home I stopped in Clinton and got another dog. Yes, I have lost my mind. His name is Ranger and he is another Yorkie. He is 4 1/2 months old now. Patch is jealous. But this morning they were playing together for the first time. Yeah!! I know, you want pictures. I will when I can get him to be still. I think he has ADD. LOL Now if I can get this house training thing across to Ranger!!!. ulck!.
In the mean time I have been sewing a little. I finished the Double 9 patches for the Omigosh quilt. 110 of them! Now on to the next step 444, 4 patches.
Happy quilting,
