A series of gemstone patterns for quiltmakers
Make the entire year; select special ones for
Mother's Day, wedding or baby gift
Each block would be perfect for a throw pillow
Great for a grandchildren quilt
Blocks finish at 17"x17"
Created with freezer paper-piecing techniques,
each block in the Birthstone Series represents a
traditional birthstone with a unique cut.
Skill Level - Basic to intermediate sewing
[Inspired by the National Gem Collection at
the Smithsonian Museum]
The pattern includes a fully-coded freezer
paper template; full-scale paper copy to
use as a key; and 12-page pattern booklet
that includes fabric requirements,
detailed instructions for block construction,
quilting suggestions, and instructions and
fabric requirements for one additional project.
Freezer paper piecing is not typical paper piecing:
you don't sew to a paper foundation;
templates are ironed to the RIGHT side,
so there is no confusing reverse piecing;
templates are easily removed so there are
no paper bits to pull from the back of the quilt;
and you only use the minimum fabric needed
since there is no flip-and-sew method used.
Fat quarter sets for each month available
I am happy to combine shipping whenever possible.

Most of our fabric is priced by the 1/2 yard or panel section
and cut to order from the bolt in one continuous piece. Exceptions are noted on individual listings (some fabric will be by the yard)
Quilt kits are cut to yardage, include the instructions, and all fabric to make the quilt top and binding. It may not match the suggested cut list yardage from the manufacturer, but you will always receive enough to complete the project as shown - we keep our kits affordable. Backing for quilt kits is not included.
We're happy to consider custom orders, and if you don't see a fabric you would like, let us know! We may be able to find it for you.
