This week it was time to make the Gemstones
First pull out strips, shades and patterns that look like gems...
start with some basic shapes, then log cabin around them
|this is more saturated than it looks in this pic. You can see the mitered strips are different widths|
|for scale, the V-quilt is about 32" X 35" so the large baguette is about 10"|
For now I am practicing quilting designs and thread colors on the little scraps- from- scraps, winter scene, before tackling the cattail piece.
|about 12" X 18" right now|
scrap happy Saturdays
