Workshops - Jewel Box (3-hour virtual class)

Jewel Box  (3-hour virtual class)

Created using a light, medium and dark value of four cool colors. Perfect pattern for batiks, gradated fabrics or hand dyed fabrics! (Quilt is 48" x 48".)


SUPPLY LIST (virtual class)

Handout fee $10  (pattern and handouts)

If taking the class from your guild, you will need to order your pattern before class.  You can order a hard-copy from Karen or download a copy from Karen’s Etsy store.  

Link to download Karen's Jewel Box pattern from her Etsy store is here.

Link to order a printed copy of Karen's Jewel Box pattern is here. 

(Karen will have more handouts for you in class. She will send a link once we are in class.)

  • Rotary Cutter
  • Medium rotary mat
  • Rotary ruler for cutting your strips
  • 6½” x 6½” (or similar size) rotary ruler for squaring up triangle units

(I like the Omnigrid square ruler that has a 45° line down the middle of the ruler, as shown here.)

  • Light gray piecing thread for sewing machine
  • ¼” foot (or set up your machine with a ¼” seam allowance)
  • Basic sewing supplies you always like to work with (thread clips, seam ripper, pins, etc.)


Fabric Selection

Pick 4 colors, Karen used blue, blue/green, purple and green.  Once you have your 4 colors, you will need a light, medium and dark of each color.  See below for details about yardages.

Select non-busy fabrics for the best results. Examples would be tone on tone basics or tone on tone batiks.  Be sure fabric is non-busy, such as a tone on tone fabric or a gradated fabric such as Karen’s Serendipity, Batik Cascade and Colorfall fabrics.

Gradated fabric can be ordered from Karen’s webstore here 

Be sure to watch Karen’s video about fabric selection before selecting your fabrics. Video is located here.

If purchasing Karen’s Serendipity, Colorfall or Batik Cascade fabrics, you will need 1 yard of Green, 1 yard of Teal, 1 yard of Blue and 2 yards of Purple. 

If purchasing Stonehenge Ombre from Karen's store, you may need 2 yards of Green, Teal and Blue and 3 yards of Purple.  You need the extra fabric because Stonehenge Ombre has more than 3 values on the gradation.  There will be parts of the yardage you do not use.  (It could become a binding, if you wish)


 Pre-class cutting – Karen will send a pre-cutting chart about two weeks before your class.
