My son in Brisbane Australia was getting married in January this year, so I asked him if he would like a quilt as a wedding gift. He said he was sure his new wife to be would love it, so I found a box full of Jewel Block blocks, which I had started in 1998, and thought I may as well use them and that would get the quilt finished quicker. I was thinking Queen size i.e. about 85" square. I was sewing merrily away, when he rang one night to say, oh by the way Mum we are getting a new bed. A large king size slat bed. That meant the quilt had to finish about 105" square! Boo Hoo! After slogging away I managed to get it finished in time, although I did send it away to be quilted.
