These quilt blocks are stunning... and fun to make!
Starting this month we are offering MJ Kinman's amazing Birthstone Quilt Blocks in the store - right now. We have the January Garnet and the February Amethyst block patterns and fabric bundles in stock, and the rest of the months are on their way! We had originally intended to offer one each month, but when we tried making one it was SO much fun that we decided we couldn't wait to share them.
We made the Diamond block (April's Birthstone, available in the store soon!) and found that piecing it was very straightforward. It went together quickly, and most importantly, it was FUN to make!
Each block is offered separately so you can make them all and make a quilt, or make your favorites as wall hangings, pillows, or whatever you can imagine.
January Garnet Fat Quarter Bundle
We recommend an Add-A-Quarter Ruler to make this project a cinch!
To make the quilt, you cut apart the freezer paper template that is provided with the pattern and iron the pieces to the fabric before cutting around them with an additional quarter inch seam allowance. The Add-A-Quarter makes this super easy!
