Warm Jewels Quilt




















I’ve been on a roll with finishing up quilts!  Our baby could be arriving this month, so I’m using the nesting urges to my advantage in the sewing room.

My lack of blogging does not necessarily mean that I haven’t been sewing.  I find the photography/uploading/editing process to be so tedious that I put it off for another day...

I’m trying something different today which, if it works, could really simplify this step and make it enjoyable.

I just snapped these photos with my phone, used the blogger app and did minimal editing on my photos.   Yes, I realize I may be from the Stone Age,  I guess I just thought I needed to use my camera.

But on to this quilt... I had some leftover 2” squares from another project so I made some four patches.  Then I thought they’d be more special set on point.  Then some scrappy strips between would be fun... and here’s this warm and bright little quilt, which I quite like.  It’s about 40” square.  Forcing myself to use my Hope Valley stash, as you can see from the backing!

  1. I was laughing with you at the comment about using your phone camera. I forget sometimes to use it, and other times I just immediately snap a few shots. At any rate, you've made something lovely and shared it with us. Given everything else you have surrounding the impending arrival, excellent work.

  2. I love it !! And thanks for the idea of what to do with all the 4-patches I make as leader/enders when making something else :-) Have "shoe boxes" full of them :-)

  5. Oh, this quilt is fantabulous! It looks so soft and cuddly, and scrappy is my all time favorite! I AM a dinosaur. I don’t even have a cell phone.
