    Hi Denise! I saw your quilt posted on the Kinman site. It's stunning. I love your colors on several of the gems. Do you have a fabric guide, or package with the fabrics you used?

    I mainly pulled from the solids in my stash, which were primarily solids from Connecting Threads. I would start with the color guide that comes with the pattern and loosely interpret it as I need 5 shades of blue and three shades of gray. It did not seem to matter especially what five shades of blue I picked as long as there was sufficient contrast to tell that there were five shades of blue. When I did not have the fabric available in my stash I brought what I had to my LQS and filled in from the Kona selections available there. I only used true white once. Most of the places that look white are a very pale tint of the main color family in the gem. If you look in this album you can get close up pictures of the solid fabrics I used showing their relative contrast to one another. It also has my mock up of recoloring the Pink Tourmaline to a Diamond colored block.

    Denise,
    This is really pretty! I'd give it a 10 out of 10 if you were doing a scale of "The Prettiest Quilt" from 1 to 10.

    I can't agree more. I would have lost my mind somewhere through even the first one.

    The depth of colour you achieved in those gems is so realistic! Beautiful quilt Denise, I love your adventurous spirit.

    That's funny. I actually made the sapphire one and have the emerald pattern and fabric. I didn't even think about that....
