I have a lovely pile of gemstones. Quilt blocks, that is! I have finished the gemstone blocks for a baby quilt for a dear friend. I'm very excited about this quilt. Even my husband is extra enthusiastic about this one. The rich colors really pop, and they are so perfect for this friend.
This week, I'm working on getting all of the blocks sewn into fours so I can lay out the top. I always think it's easier to figure out a layout when I have less choices to make. Arranging 20 sets of four is much less daunting than arranging 80 individual blocks.
