In the sample quilt layouts featured here, I have chosen to make the Jewel Box quilt with a light background fabric in the individual blocks. Dark background fabrics also make for stunning quilts using this quilt block. This is the perfect choice for a scrap quilt, especially if you choose "jewel" toned fabrics -- to further enhance the name of the quilt block. Whatever your choice, this is a simple block and quilt to construct for the ultimate colour sensation. Note that surprise secondary patterns can emerge as you design the layout of your personal quilt.
