    Jewel Box quilt for my Super Sweet Mother-in-love

    It took me about 8mos to piece this queen size quilt. 1)She asked that it reach down to the bedskirt 2)I got tired of cutting. LOL! THEN my sweet daughters got together and bought me a AccuQuilt Go for my 40th bday The night I got the GO!, I cut out the rest of this quilt in 20 minutes!!! Which was enough 6 1/2" triangles and 3 1/2" squares to make 26 12" blocks.
    Anyway, this is the quilt on her bed. She LOVES it!!!

    Wonderful! Love the colors and fabrics you chose. Hand quilted! Whoo hoo! Love and quilting, but I don't know that I'll ever do a bed size. I am in awe.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!
