Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 12 is featuring my Gemstone foundation pieced quilt block! It even made the cover! Despite its complicated appearance, this block is fast and easy to make. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed!
This is the Gemstone block that is featured in the magazine. It measures 12'' x 12'' and can easily be scaled up or down to suit your needs. This coloration reminds me of an amethyst, wouldn't it be fun to make a giant ruby or an emerald?
A three block by four block arrangement would make a great baby or lap sized quilt and would make a great gift for your favorite little "gem"!
Don't be afraid to experiment with color. There is no need to stick with the gem tones. How about a nice pink ombre or a striking aqua and orange combination? I particularly like the Halloween combination, it has a vintage feel to it.
