πŸ”· Jewel πŸ”· Box πŸ”·

Missy made this beautiful Jewel Box quilt for her dear friend!!!

Quilt Info:
Pattern: Jewel Box
Fabric: Royal Blue by Edyta Sitar
Size: 61" X 69"
Batting: Quilters Dream Batting, Orient
Thread: Glide, Linen
Quilting: Windy Meandering
Interesting Fact: Missy is a whiz at matching backing fabrics. Check out how well she matched this Toile backing fabric:
The quilting is Windy Meandering and is a 52" repeat across!!!

Quilters Dream Batting, Orient, is a blend of bamboo, silk, tencel and cotton. It has the softest drape of all, which makes it super cuddly, it shrinks less and is lighterweight, which makes it a great choice for warmer climates or summer quilts. It's my favorite batting to use for throws!

Although this fabric line is called "Royal Blue", it's really more teal!


Great job, Missy!!! Your friend will love this quilt!
    
The Jewel Box block pattern was popular in the 1990s, when I first made one. Have you made a Jewel Box quilt? 
    
Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy
