Four Jewel Box Quilt Blocks

Jewel Box Quilts

The terms Jewel Box and Buckeye Beauty refer to the same quilt design, but Jewel Box quilts are made from multiple 4-block groups like the blocks illustrated on this page, often (but not always) stitched in vibrant jewel-tone fabrics against a contrasting background.

Jewel Box was featured in a past forum event. The hostess devised this color scheme, asking participants to sew quilt blocks with solid black or black tone-on-tone (ToT) fabrics in the background, and diagonal elements in bright batiks.

As always, the quilt pattern remains on the Quilting site for quilters to use any time they wish.

Finished block size: 10" x 10"

The 4-block illustration on this page finishes at 20" x 20".

Fabrics for One Quilt Block


  • (4) 3" x 3" squares
  • (1) or (2) 5-7/8" x 5-7/8" squares

Jewel-tone Batiks:

  • (4) 3" x 3" squares from at least 2 different fabrics
  • (1) or (2) 5-7/8" x 5-7/8" squares
