Gemstones

Gemstones
57 x 68 inches
Quilt of Valor
Gemstones was made from scraps from many other Quilts of Valor. I am thrilled that Lori (Dakota City Quilter) told me about this quilt block. It is a great way to use a variety of scraps.

Gemstones is Quilt of Valor # 79. A list of the quilts can be seen here.

  11. This quilt turned out beautifully! I was thinking it must be a great way to use up smaller scraps. I think I might need to make at least one quilt using this pattern. Must look it up. Thanks for sharing it.

  13. Album blocks are so much fun. I think the border gives the top its direction, yours is warm and welcoming!

  14. This is a gorgeous quilt! I like how you tamed your scraps/colors in the blocks. It gives a sense of unity to each block and a sense of scrappiness to the whole quilt.
