I was surprised and happy to find you here. I haven't been active on this site and just now decided to check it out. I usually post on the Missouri Quilt Co forum. If I can help you in any way let me know.
To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. Now I have a new Charm Swap started with Batiks and Cottons so if your interested in either one you will have to friend Carla Walton and I and join in the swaps http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap
