Jewel's Debs have their Come Out

Last year I hosted a free Block of the Month called Jewels in the Crown.  Several of the participants have finished their quilts and posted pictures of them, and I couldn't be more proud.  I feel like a mama duck with chicks that are all grown up!  And look at these beauties swim!!

My thanks to all these quilters who shared pictures of their wonderful work.  They each have a treasure, unique and all their own with a seriously high WOW-factor.

Go here to see more pictures of these amazing quilts and blocks.

Just in case these inspire you, the pattern is available on my website HERE

And thanks to all of you who are participating in this year's BOM.  I hope you are sharing pictures of your blocks on the Flickr Album Vintage Sampler.

If you would like to participate in a kitted version of this BOM using 1930's reproduction fabrics you are in luck!  Quilting Bits and Pieces in Eudora, KS is preparing to offer this BOM (the 9" blocks) as a KIT in 30's fabrics.  I saw one of the blocks made up yesterday and it was so cute!!!  Contact the shop if you would like to participate.  They ship BOM kits regularly so don't feel as though you have to live in the KC area to participate.  They ship everywhere.

If you would like to do a sampler quilt with 13 of the larger blocks, you are in luck too.  Quilting Bits and Pieces will also be offering a KIT for this Block of the Month.

It will be made in BATIKS.  I am working up the first two blocks now and it is going to be lovely!  If you want to enroll in this Block of the Month (I am still working on a name for it) be sure to contact the quilt shop right away.  I believe both of these BOM kits will start in May.

I am ususally pretty good at thinking up names but for some reason the "pink and purple star BOM" just doesn't seem to be good enough. 


Post an idea for a name for this quilt in the comments of this post.
