If it’s your first time here, WELCOME…I hope you enjoy your visit. I’m Jo a true quilter at heart. Lately blueberries, a couple days away, my garden and my kiddos have been eating up my spare time so not lots of sewing has been going on here since I finished up this quilt…I am hoping to change that soon.
Before the giveaway, I’ll tell you about the quilt that I am calling Jewels in the Curio. The quilt block that is featured in the quilt is called Jewel Box and the Moda fabric line is called Curio.
The fabric is wonderful…the colors almost remind me of a soft southwest palette. The terracotta and turquoise colors mixed with light green and yellows is a beautiful calming mix. I think this fabric line is perfect for gift giving. The colors aren’t bright. They aren’t pastel and they aren’t dark. Most anyone could find a place to put a quilt with these warm pleasing colors.
The quilt is made with one jelly roll and two charm packs along with a cream Moda Marble fabric.
The jelly roll strips that are left after piecing the blocks are then pieced together to make a fun scrappy border.
The quilt is about 79″ x 79″…not real big…not real small. If you would like a larger quilt, another border could easily be added.
I didn’t do fancy machine quilting….
it’s just some free motion swirls. You can see that the block is made from two larger half square triangles and two four patches… If you are a beginning quilter, this pattern is something you can do.
The quilt is laid out in a barn raising pattern which is a favorite of mine.
If you are looking for the complete instructions on how to make the quilt head on over to Moda Bake Shop. Leave a comment there and tell me what you think. If you’re looking for fabric to get your project started, The Fat Quarter Shop is the place to go.
