TGIFF - Gemstones

Back in February, I tested some paper piecing patterns for Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop.  There are four patterns in her Gemology Series.  You can find Andrea's patterns here.

I procrastinated finishing these wall hangings (about 12 inches) because I didn't know how to quilt them.  In the end, I followed the suggestion in the patterns.

Here is Emerald Cut.

This is Teardrop Cut.

For the above two, I used Kona Torch, Flame, Sunny, Papaya, Kumquat, Orange, and Black.

This is Round Cut.

This is Princess Cut.

For these two, I used Kona White, Silver, Iron, Medium Grey, Coal, Black, and Ivory.

This is the second of my FAL Q4 goals.

  1. I like the orange ones best! Have a great weekend.

  2. Superb work! I love the round cut. You are very clever.

  3. Wow, they are all so nice! Well done, Anja! I can't pick a favorite!

  4. Beautiful job on the wall hangings! I've only used one so far in the centre of a quilt top. Still not sure what to do with the rest of them. It was fun to be a tester :)

  5. They all look lovely but the orange ones pop!

  6. Beautiful finishes! I really, really love the orange ones!

  7. I like the quilting lines radiating out like the gemstones are sparkling. Congratulations on 4 finishes!

  8. Very nice designs, I love how the oranges one pop.

  9. I love all the unique ideas I see people make out of fabric. What a great idea for a special quilt for a birthday.

  10. Love them all but that Teardrop cut is amazing. I also like the quilting. Looks just like the sun reflections off of a diamond!

  11. These are wonderful! Well done!

  12. Very nice, I like the teardrop and the round cut best, although I prefer the orange for colour. Wish I could paper piece.

  13. These are really pretty. I like the round cut and teardrop best.

  14. Wow, I love how you quilted these; they have even more depth now! Have enjoyed seeing them and eyes opening wide when they've popped up on Instagram. :-)
