Jewel Box quilt

Once upon a time, I made this quilt and called her Sweet Tea.  I gifted it to a very good friend.  The pattern was from the  Moda Bake Shop and was a jewel box quilt.  

I had so much fun putting this one together - works well with a layer cake and 3 yards of background fabric.

So much fun, that I decided to do it again - this time using Fig Tree Tapestry.

I've assembled 40 of these blocks.

I now need 39 more of these HST blocks.  (The remainder of the HST need to be pressed and trimmed - all 156 of them.)

I purchased these beauties for the border, binding and backing.

This quilt will also be a gift.  Haven't given the quilt a name yet.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Sweet Tea is beautiful, and your second version on the way is going to be another gorgeous quilt!

  2. I've done this pattern too Patty and I gifted mine to a friend! Maybe it's time I did another one for me! Hugs Linda

  3. Always a great of my favorites. I even did one with black background and jewels colors once. Your combo is looking good....maybe call it Sweet Tea Too!

  4. love this pattern. I think the new one looks like it shoudl be called country living -- reminds me of my childhood growing up on a farm

  5. So many quilts, so little time... great quilt and this fabric line will look great with "Jewel Box"... looking forward to watching your progress!

  6. Very pretty! I like your fabric choices for the one you are doing now too!

  7. I love Jewel Box quilts and both of yours look great!
