WIP Wednesday 11/23/2011

Exquisite Jewels
53" square
Exquisite blocks
Original design
Mostly from stash
Completed 11/23/2011
Donated to BASICS

I finished Exquisite Jewels today and sent it on its way to BASICS, a non-profit organization in the Bronx, NYC that helps homeless families get out of shelters and back into transitional housing. I hope whoever gets the quilt will enjoy it.

Economy block, nine-patch block, half square triangle

I’m close to finishing the piecing for Cathy’s Southwest. I finished the Economy blocks and made turquoise/black nine-patch blocks. I sewed some half-square triangles, but they are too small so I’ll have to re-do them. Also to be made are purple/gold nine-patches and a few Rail Fence units.

I hope to start putting the units together in the next day or two.


  1. That is quite an interesting design in that top quilt.

  2. Marsha, I think it was an exercise in randomness, which I was experimenting with at the time. I made the quilt top at least six years ago, and I don't recall the method I used to determine the layout. It's different. :)

    I trust that just the right person will get the quilt and love it.
