FUN FABRIC BOX (and a link to the tut)

I just made a cool fabric box for my son, he´s kept his coins in a glass jar but that broke - I wonder why! - so I asked him if he would like me to make him a fabric box for the coins and he thought that was kind of cool. So here is the link to my all time favorite method of making a fabric box - just CLICK HERE - and you´ll get to the tut in no time :)
Here are photos of my finished box - cool right!


STARTED MY DEAR JEAN QUILT - 225 BLOCK

 I started my Dear Jane quilt a few weeks ago - that has been a dream for so long and I´m so happy that I finely bought the book and have done 6 blocks so far I do them all QAYG and have machine stitched them and quilted but now that I have seen so many blocks that have been hand quilted I want to try that on my next block. I really love the way that turns out and it would be so great to have one quilt that I hand quilted. Here are photos of the 6 blocks I´v done - I might let them stay like this - machine quilted - but I might also rip them apart and hand quilt - I´m just going to see how the hand quilting goes before I do anything with them LOL


 When I was thinking of how to make them, what fabric I should use and so on................ I decided to use just the fabric I had so it would look scrappy but I would not have to buy a lot for this quilt. I also decided to make the backing out of the same fabric that I would use on the front of each block. I like how this is going to look.   
I´m going to do them by alphabetical row and started on block A1
