Not even close

Bummer. I've been working on my 1930's Jewel Box swap blocks -and have then all joined together into a top.. only it's not large enough. My Jewel Box needs at least another row in both directions before adding my fancy border I found to add. Guess I'll keep on, keepin on with these.... I sure hope I don't run out of 30's scraps!

Looking on the bright side - at least I found a boarder that is different than the usual - most photos I searched on flickr. Most Jewel Box Quilts had piano key borders... but not this one! take a look!

The above is how I always name my photos that I save in my "Inspiration" folder, so that I can always remember who or where I found it... I like to give credit where credit is due ;) So I printed out a photo and marked it up - like a road map planning my next adventure. I think I'll use HSTs to create the turn on the diagonals out into the white area.

I will have to make another row both for the top/bottom and the side... to make it large enough before adding my border. I really like this plan... I just wonder how long it will take for me to get there?? :/

Love from Texas!
