I finished this Jewel Box top on Friday, and have it on my design wall to admire for a few days. It really is straight; just hanging wonky on the wall. Working with a 1-inch "scale" is really my most favorite size. I've probably mentioned that my true love is doll and crib sized quilts, and this is a smallish crib size at 38x46. Vicki saw it and said, "Oh, wouldn't it be great full sized?" That's what I thought, too, but it's not gonna happen.
I did make 60degree diamonds in a sort of series - small (doll), medium (crib), and large (bed) sizes. The tops are done, but the quilting goes on and on. It was fun to do, as the diamonds make a variety of patterns. The bed quilt is seven sisters, and the crib is stars, while the doll is tumbling blocks. It would be something that I would consider again if I found another block that I fell in love with, and could be sewn in a variety of settings.
