Jewelbox Wall Hanging Quilt

Jewelbox Wall Hanging Quilt

This is my Jewelbox wall hanging quilt. It is 36 inches on each side. When I started it, it was supposed to be a challenge quilt to raise money for breast cancer research. However, I didn't finish it in time for the deadline because I was too busy with school in those days. The challenge was that you had to use 3 of 4 preselected fabrics to make any wall hanging no larger than 36 inches on either side.

The piecing was all done on machine. The quilting, which is almost completed is all done by hand. I am quilting every 1/4 " in the white spaces, and am quilting a flower-like design in the large color squares that are formed by 4 triangles coming together. I love the look and feel that come from putting so much quilting into the project, but I'm sure glad I chose to do it on a quilt that is only 36 inches on each side.
