Phillips Fiber Art and the Jewel Box Tools!

The Jewel Box Gem Tools from Phillips Fiber Art and How They All Work Together

Jewel Box Gem tools lend a new angle to your quilting adventure. Each tool can work independently yet when paired with the rest of the family, the possibilities are endless.


The main star is a golden triangle, the Gem Ten. Our eyes tend to have a natural preference for shapes that are mathematically golden, or in divine proportion. Quilts on this page were made with ten of these pieces sewn together. If you look closely at the Dazzler quilt, you’ll see a pentagon sewn to the Gem Ten. The pentagon is made with the Gem Five tool. They fit together perfectly! Although they appear to be for advanced quilters, the patterns are actually quite simple to make with detailed instructions and wonderful diagrams.

Use the Gem Junior to create smaller versions of the Jewel Box patterns. Conversion charts for three sizes for the patterns are found on the web site HERE.

The Junior is a smaller version of the Gem 5 and 10 set, yet made in a single tool. The Gem Junior is also precisely sized to be used with the full size Gem Five and Ten.

For more detail in your Jewel Box designs add the Gem Thirty tool to your line up. Three wedges sewn together create one Gem Ten piece. When the trio is sewn together in the various ten sided designs, they give the illusion of a complex quilt. The Stargello quilt is a great example. You’ll be so surprised at how easy it is to put together.

Create fun five point star appliques in several sizes with the Gem Star. The quick folding technique means there’s no edges to turn under! The stars are ideal for embellishing a project or making Christmas ornaments. More than stars, you can  use the tool to make a different pentagon. Substitute it with Gem Five pentagons and your design possibilities have multiplied.

If you want your Jewel Box quilts squared, use our  Framing Template pattern, The pieces are added as you piece the center, so framing is painless.

The innovative and multipurpose Jewel Box tools inspire you to be creative and allow you to explore many avenues in your quilting experience.

The Jewel Box Line includes:

Soaring Surf Fusique Pattern by Linda Everhart of Quilting Among Friends


Quilting Among Friends’ Linda Everhart

Twenty two years ago I had the honor of having Kaye Woods as a quest in our home, and I had my opportunity of taking a quilting workshop from a high caliber, expertise quilter.  I was hooked.  I had a Home Ec. degree but after meeting Kaye, I knew my hearts desire was to travel giving quilt programs for guilds, cruises, quilt shops and churches.  I loved teaching sewing!  I began taking workshops from well-known quilters, and made a trunk full of quilts.  I prayed the Lord would give me wisdom to creative a new technique to allow me future opportunity of travel and teaching.  After making a beautiful complex reverse appliqué quilt, I realized there should be an easier way.  My brain was spinning ideas; what if I did it this way?  I practiced making quilts from my streamlined, high tech idea making the same quilt ingeniously in half the time. Behold, my new technique was born, and I received the gift I prayed for.  This creation of fused reverse appliqué’ was trademarked fusique™’.

That is my story and I found myself living a life driven by infinite possibilities of quilted art inspired by the color, texture and designs in fabric.  I have never “cooled” or looked back.  In 2000 I launched my pattern design company Among Friends using this technique.  The opportunities followed in many ways.  My first major accomplishments included taping Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson on HGTV, and then a second opportunity to meet Kaye Woods, again, as a guest on Kaye’s Quilting Friends.  Other exciting events have included teaching in England, Ireland, and Wales, followed by teaching on many cruises to Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand CaymanIsland and Cozumel, Mexico.  Several magazines featured my designs, including the Euro Magic Patchwork.   How fun is that for a farm girl, who spends time fixing fence in the fall?

My trunk show of quilts with a blast of color will amaze and inspire you to create new quilts. Start your quilting fun now!  I am sharing a pattern and instructions for a short time, thanking KayeWood.com for encouraging me to quilt, giving me opportunities I never dreamed, and supporting me thru their web site.  Where would I be if I had lost the opportunity to meet Kaye Woods in my home many years ago?  Don’t miss your opportunity, as there is great wisdom found on her website!!  My shared pattern Soaring Surf is available to purchase HERE

Petal Play Applibond Technique – Grapes!


Petal Play Grape Pattern by Joan Shay of Petal Play

3 Dimensional Applique Patterns

Joan says, “Come garden with me. No weeds … guaranteed!

Whether you are a beginning quilter or an expert in appliqué, my 3-D Appli-bond© technique will allow you to add exciting realistic three-dimensional appliqué to your quilts.

Appli-bond© is the fusing of two pieces of fabric together and allows you to create dimension without turning any edges. All you do is bond the fabric, trace the template, cut the shape and apply the bonded pieces to the background with an embroidery stitch. It’s really that simple!

By the way, these quilts can go in to the washer and dryer. They will not lose their shape or curl if bonded properly.

Petal Play offers a large variety of products including patterns, Books, pre-cut petals, needles, kits, templates and a number of very helpful notions. Please view our catalog for a complete listing.

I have never enjoyed gardening but I love flowers. Appli-bond© allows me to create a weed-free garden that blooms all year.”
