The Jewel Box Quilt is out of its grocery sack and on to the design floor.
Big step! That is Daughter carefully unloading the stack using the photo printout as a guide. She let the cat in, who promptly decided the occasion called for a Kitty Quilt Quality Inspection.
The cat was invited to leave.
I had nearly forgotten what the quilt looked like. It has been more than a year, make that two years, since it was last out of the bag.
That is the picture Daughter used to lay it out.
Funny what we forget. Apparently at one point I was considering a 4-patch border and made many pieces preparing for that.
What will I do for the borders? I don’t know. But I am quite sure. Almost quite sure, that it will not be a four patch. So, these are being sent to the four-patch pile. How convenient that they are the right size.
By the end of the weekend the quilt looked like this.
(That orange section worries me. )
Just a few more blocks to go and then it is assembly time. Why have I put this off for three years?
