To do the Jewel Box we have a Batik Strip Swap going on and we are using those strips for the Jewel Box. We just started a Charm Square Swap of either a Batik or 100% cotton at http://myquiltplace.com/group/charm-square-swap?xg_source=activity today to use with our Jewel Box Quilt project. Just come on over to join and then you can decide if you want to swap or just do the quilt projects.
i have followed her and been a fan from almost the beginning of her career. have a few of her books on color & drafting. pick up her fabs here and there. but basically, tho i love it...it is just too expensive. have her bookmarked also. try to keep up w her blog and a few others like brackman etc.
beautiful purple fabric is so hard to find, one would think it was still being set aside for the royals! lol when i find it, and it is true purple, not screaming red purple, i buy several yards to stash. bought some few years ago after fruitless search in all lqs - which are all an hour of more away in all directions :)). i was nervous...NEEDED that puple for quilt requested by son as xmas gift for dil. so..took the plunge. ordered more than needed just in case. if no like full refund w return of unused fabric. it was beautiful. excellent quality, perfect color & half off clearance. connecting threads. first time i had bought fabric from them. now i haunt their clearance pages! :))
