Kerin Ferrin (who you may know as Tuffets with Kerin) has become certified in teaching spectacular fabric Gems created by MJ Kinman, Textile Artist. Capture the brilliance of colored gemstones in this 12 month BOM titled The Birthstone Series. The series, beginning in February 2019, includes twelve (12) freezer paper piecing patterns for 17" square blocks representing all the traditional birthstones. Each individually- packaged 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 and detailed instructions for block construction.
Each pattern has a skill-builder component offering a unique opportunity to learn soft curves, sewing with small pieces and diamond shapes.
The Birthstone series is presented in a way that give us plenty of options including creating a Jewel Box quilt featuring all twelve months. The finished quilt is 57 x 75. The most beautiful gemstone captures light and reflects it back to us with unique brilliance, revealing its fiery personality says creator MJ Kinman.
Note: Single-foundation piecing is not typical paper piecing: templates are ironed to the RIGHT side, so there is no confusing reverse piecing; templates are easily removed and REUSABLE, so there are no paper bits to pull from the back of the quilt; reduces fabric waste since there is no flip-and-sew method used. Join Kerin here at Pine Tree Quilt Shop to learn how to create the biggest Gems in the world~ in fabric!
