Sunkissed Jewel Box - Finished!

Another long-finished top, now a quilt!

This was based off two Moda Bake Shop tutorials - I used two charm packs and some yardage to create the Jewel Box block, and laid it out in a Barn Raising setting.

{What the heck was I thinking with this camera angle?}

I wish I had taken time to plan better - I really, really like how the squares make rings of each color, but since I didn't plan it that way, I ran out of the darker shades in each color, and didn't have enough orange/green to do a full ring.

{I should really rake the leaves...since it's January.}

I adore the backing/binding. It was an impulse - saw it in the store and guessed that it was the right colors. I love it when that works out!

Fabric: Sunkissed by Sweetwater, yellow tone-on-tone
Backing/Binding: Bukhara by Dear Stella
Size: 48" square
Block Pattern: Jewel Box / Jewel Box
Quilted - straight echo by me

Quilt will be for sale on my Facebook Page once I get it over there.



  1. Beautiful! I have 2 quilts planned (and one fully cut out) from a large bundle of Sunkissed, so I'm going to bookmark this one to try and make a baby-sized one from the scraps. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is really lovely Kate. So soft and soothing looking.

  3. Dare I say I'm glad you didn't plan it - I like it JUST the way it is!!

  4. This one is so pretty. :) It looks really neat with the yellow and green forming that ring together. Don't feel bad at all about not having enough for their own rings!

  5. Such a beautiful quilt, Kate! I love Sunkissed - cheery warm colors make me happy! Whoop whoop!!
