gathering gemstones, a new toy and a Kaffe Fassett overload

I have decided that a design wall would make putting the blocks in place so much easier. Being able to stand back and look at the blocks from a distance must make creating a pleasing pattern easier.

In looking at the photo I took, I can see a couple of blocks I will be picking apart and reassembling as well.!!

My new toy arrived this week! A 60 degree ruler... Doesn't take much to make me happy :)

Having cut rectangles for my stashbusting Gemstones quilt using the Kaffe Fassett prints left over from making this quilt plus my other KF stash,  there is still a good amount of KF prints left.
This might possibly be because of the extra fabric I bought to help balance the colours/values etc.
 Funny how that goes......

I have a whole lot of strips now which were perfect for these blocks. I can see another KF prints quilt. How far can I take this? Possibly a scrap quilt as well?

PS - Add "The Big Bang Theory" on DVD and some Toblerone chocolate and it all made for a very happy scenario!


  1. Hi Mari, I can't believe you have the top together already. It looks great. The one's I have seen all look so different. Oh, by the way, I think we both share the same addiction for chocolate. Yummm...
    Happy Quilting

  2. Love your gemstones quilt!
    I too recently bought a 60* ruler...I bought a couple jelly rolls and want to make a hexagon quilt. Haven't started to play with it yet since I"ve had company all summer...can't wait for the quieter days of winter.
    I love big bang theory too!
