Jewel Box finished

 So glad this is out of the closet and finished!  I am going to keep the simple border, just so all the piecing does not ravel.  Lots of little pieces in this one, I love using up part of my tiny pieces!  It is now big enough to cover a person up, not so small as before.
 I am making a few Honey Bee blocks.  I have twelve of them planned.  These are made from my nine patch swap blocks that I participated in a couple years ago.
A favorite block!  Of course...it is pink!!


Have a great day, everyone!!

I really like the looks of this. Do you know where I can get the pattern? Thanks for sharing.

Wow! With those smaller blocks the size of the quilt is deceptive. Seems like it should be huge!
Honeybee is a very cute block. Are you doing applique by machine or hand. Maybe if I enlarged the photo I would be able to tell--but I didn't. : )

I have said it before but I will say it again. I love your jewel quilt!

Every time I visit your blog I am riveted by your header quilt. I just ordered the book so I can have one of my very own.

The Jewel Box is gorgeous, Julie, and the Honeybee is a favorite block, although I forget about it. These look so sweet. :P

I like the red borders on your Jewel Box. What a wonderful idea to make Honey Bee blocks from your 9 patch exchange. I never would have thought of it. Thirty some years ago when I took a beginning quilting class that was the block they used. When ever I see this block it brings back such fond memories. Thanks so much for sharing!

Nicky said...

Loving everything I'm seeing! Those Honey bee blocks are very cute and my fav is the red one!

Merilyn said...

The jewel box has turned out very well, and yes I agree that small red border frames it without being overpowering!! What a great way of using up those 9-patch blocks, these blocks will make up very nicely!!!!

Lori said...

The honey bee blocks are adorable!!

I love the bigger jewel box quilt.I think a simple border is all it needs.

The Jewel Box is beautiful! Nice work to rescue it from the closet and give it the attention it deserves. The honey bees are cute, I had never seen them before.
