Flying Geese Quilt Box in Turquoises . . .

I thought I'd do a Flying Geese Box in shades of Turquoise rather than the multi colors I've used on them previously.  I don't think it turned out bad.  --Bob

Star and Bars Quilt Themed Box . . .

Just finished this box this morning.  It is based on a quilt pattern developed for the Bicentennial.  I thought it was attractive, so did a version for this box. --Bob

A Box Inspired by Boho Design Ideas . . .


I created this box last night and kind of borrowed ideas from Boho design.  It is different from the kind I usually do.  I don't usually use such bright colors.  I put the wood moons on the top and felt it needed something, so added the little flowers to perk it up a bit.  I will put it up for sale in our shop sometime today or tomorrow. --Bob

A Strawberry Themed Recipe Box . . .

I got this box finished a bit sooner than I thought I would.  I will be putting it up for sale in our shop either today or tomorrow. --Bob

A New Cherry Themed Recipe Box . . .

I made this box yesterday.  I painted it with a light colored background to see if that would be more popular than the black ones I did.  I have a strawberry one in the works and will post a picture of it when it is done. --Bob

Another Quilt Pattern Themed Box . . .

This box is based on the Quilt Pattern called Bear's Claw. Quakers called it Hand of Friendship.  On Long Island, quilters called it Duck's Foot in the Mud.  Anyways, I finished it up last night and hope to put it up for sale in our shop today or tomorrow. --Bob

Indian Star Quilt themed box . . .

I finished up this box last night, a little late for this year's Christmas sales.  I painted the bacground a blue-gray color at my daughter's suggestion.  I think it came out nice. --Bob
