Laura and Gar are the masterminds behind PreQuilt, an online app that helps you visualize your quilts before you embark on making them. They have created a colouring page for the Round Cut block from the book. Try your hand at colouring the gemstone from the library of digital fabric swatches!
This week, I am hosting a social media hop for Patchwork Lab: Gemology. With a little help from my friends, we’re showing you the possibilities of the patterns from the book and extending them in our own creative ways!
First up, the nine gemstone shapes. These different gemstones can be scaled into 4 different sized blocks: 6″, 12″, 18″ and 24″. So many possibilities! Starts with the easiest, progressing towards the most intricate.
Top row: Round, Heart, Trilliant. Middle row: Radiant, Cushion, Princess. Bottom row: Teardrop, Marquise, Oval.
