Jewel Box

I've been busily working on the Jewel box quilt this week. They are taking a lot longer than I expected. I still have about 16, 4 patches left to make before I can finish the last two blocks. I put it away as I just didn't feel like finishing it. I have 10 of the 12 blocks done that I need.
I tried to get a close up picture for better color quality, but it didn't help. The purple is actually more of a raspberry purple rather than the blue purple that this showes.
After I finished up the 10th Jewel box block, I decided to get busy on the next baby quilt out of the Wanna Be a Cowboy fabric line. I completely finished the twin size, so now I'm going to make the baby quilt size like it was supposed to be made. As I was cutting it out, I realized I probably have enough to make a 2nd baby quilt. I guess we'll just have to see after I get this one done.

I've always loved the Jewel Box Quilt Design. And I love, love, love yours in purples. This quilt is going to be spectacular. Can't wait to see it finished. Yumm. Inspirational (I want one).

Love the jewel box. Between that one and the one you gave Annaliese, it's really making me think I need to make a white + another color quilt!
