This is Sheri’s Jewel Box wall hanging made in batik fabrics. She used the same pattern that my guild used for my presidents blocks that were gifted to me when my term as guild president was over. I had a few design ideas sketched out when I quilted my quilt and was very excited to try some of my other ideas on Sheri’s quilt! I think I even like what I did on Sheri’s quilt more than mine!
For Sheri’s quilt I stitched two double lines around the quarter squares to frame the block and added a curl in the center. Then I added loops in the background of the sashing. I quilted the batik fabrics with CC’s and a large loop design, the same that I did on my Presidents quilt.
Here is a picture of my Jewel Box quilt which I’ve had on my bed for over 1 1/2 years. I just love it! You can see my blog post on it here.
We had a lot of snow fall this week and I had to dig out the dock and ice rink yet again! I don’t think I have ever seen so much snow as I have to dig down to my dock and it now as snow banks along it. Never had that before!
I’ve also been using my broom to measure the snow fall this year and it finally covers the whole handle! I feel as frazzled about our winter as that broom looks!
Okay one more pretty picture of the snow and quilt! Got to keep looking to the positive side to all this snow….or I might go crazy! Good thing Spring starts tomorrow. :)
