    Got this today from about.quilting. I thought it was pretty awesome looking and only uses HSTs and 4patch blocks.

    That is a gorgeous quilt. I have bookmarked it here and also in favorites. I would love to make it for youngest DD for Christmas.

    I use About.com:Quilting myself. Janet always has some really good and complete instructions. I'm working on some UFO's right now, but that is one for me to consider AFTER that is done. Oh, and after the scrap challenge is finished. Uggh. Not enough time!!! :-)

    I know. I've been a subscriber for a few years, even before Janet took over. I just love it. I think I have nearly a whole binder of about ideas. I agree, her directions are usually very clear with good illustrations.

    I love the jewel box pattern. I started one several years ago when my cousin-in-law was pregnant. Her daughter is now... six? seven? What happened is that I used scraps, and well, it's just, .... boring. I got bored making it. I didn't think (and still don't think) that it's a little girl's quilt. And frankly I don't think it's all that interesting for anyone.

    The black background in the one linked to above is very dramatic though. I may try it again at some later date. In the meantime, I keep working slowly but surely away at this undesirable UFO jewel box. I carry the scraps in a zip lock back and hand piece a little here and a little there.

    My vote is for you to finish it! It's beautiful! 8-)

    thanks for the encouragement. i can't see "beautiful" but I can see that I've already put in a lot of work, so I want to finish it even though I've lost "heart" in it. I've played around with putting sashing in between, but it doesn't really add anything.

    I love that pattern. I also subscribe to About.com and saw this pattern and printed it. I would love to make it with the black and batiks as shown. --But I am now hand quilting one quilt, machine piecing another, and hand piecing a third one. One of these has to get finished before I start the Jewel Box.

    I have a queen size one, diagonal set with a black background that I only need to finish quilting the sashing & bind it. One of my groups did swap blocks and the hostess specified no pink because she planned to give hers to her son. Yours is very pretty and I think it is "girly". This girl likes it! ;)

    Jillaine...I think your quilt will be pretty when it's finished. You know how sometimes quilts just don't look right when they're in bits and pieces, but put them together and wow! Be sure and keep us posted!

    I like this pattern, thanks for the link.

    I also think you should finish your UFO if you still don't like it when it's completed you can donate to a charity of choice and still have the weight lifted off your shoulders.
