Jewel Box

Jewel-tone blues, golds, and browns in subtle tone-on-tones create a rich wall hanging. Fussy-cutting striped fabric makes the Aster blocks pop. Fabrics are from the Renaissance Garden collection by Jinny Beyer for RJR Fabrics.

Appliqué Blocks

1. Referring to Diagram 5, center Unit 1 and a mottled blue B circle on a blue print 21" square. Pin or baste pieces in place. Using clear monofilament thread, machine-zigzag-stitch around outer edges of unit and circle to make a blue Aster block. The block should be 21" square including seam allowances. Repeat with Unit 4 to make a second blue Aster block.

2. Using units 2 and 3, remaining mottled blue B circles, and dark blue print 21" squares, repeat Step 1 to make two dark blue Aster blocks.
