Create your own bling by using simple piecing techniques that deliver a gorgeous 17” square birthstone gem. Combine family gemstones for a wall-hanging, or use one gem as a birth announcement, a wedding anniversary, a pillow, totes, or do all twelve for a full-size bed quilt. In this workshop, you will make one gemstone using the pattern designed by MJ Kinman.
You will choose your gemstone to work on ahead of time. April is more complicated so it is not available to make in the workshop. However, you will be able to purchase it to do on your own.
Bring your own sack lunch, money for the kit and pattern, and your supplies. You will learn a unique form of of paper piecing that will be useful for other art quilts.
