Here is the completed Jewel Box top.  It hasn't been ironed yet.

I wanted to bring out the blue/teal colors in the quilt.  I chose to just continue the actual block in the border...simply because I didn't really know how else to do it.

I'm not as happy with this quilt as I am with the Strings.  I used the darker tan color as the background because I had used the light tan in the String quilt.

It does give the quilt a folksy 'prim' look, but it really is rather dull.

Next is the quilting, but here I am at a standstill.  I want to do straight line quilting, but not sure where those straight lines should be.

I sure could use some advice from all you quilters out there.  So please...any input will help.

BTW...just had cataract surgery (yesterday)...finding it hard to do stuff right now...and I may have to wait five weeks for the other eye to be done...stupid insurance companies!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for any input you can give me on quilting this...........have a wonderful day!

OneThing One Week Challenge

 I did get my blocks together for the center of the homespun plaid jewel box quilt.  Sorry the picture is so dark.
I'm still thinking about the border.  

Thanks for starting this challenge Amy...
