This paper pieced quilt will gobble up fabric scraps and create each happy square. The squares are therapeutic, and it’s very rewarding to see each block completed. The pattern is one of Kaffe Fassets designs and if you love color, the out of the box projects from this collection might become addictive. Square sizes range from 1 1/2″square to 9″square. Choose bright colors for an arty look, or monotones for a more subtle statement.

The squares are so effective in these fun colors. I can see them used for a border of a wall quilt, or the edge of pillow covers to match the quilt.

The Jewel Squares pattern is taken from Kaffe Fassett’s Glorious Patchwork, an absolutely gorgeous 158 page book, from way back in September 1997, beautifully photographed, and showcases Kaffe Fassett’s outstanding fabrics and his one-of-a-kind quilting style. There are instructions for 25 beautiful quilts, with color pictures and good instructions for each project, including patchwork basics and templates.

Included in the collection is the well sought after Crazy Squares table runner, a perfect scrap buster, and will be a stunner in any fabric. Adjust the number of blocks to make the runner any size at all. Make a square topper or table mat with four squares by four squares. Since the design offers four different sizes of squares, any size squares can be used to make up one of a kind designs.
