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.

  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 :)

  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. :-)

  15. So many gems and each one is exquisite, Anja. How do you keep them protected? Guards, armored car or a safe deposit box - I am sure they are going to be coveted by many. Terrific job!!!
