Catherine Gem Stone Class

Create your own sparkling Catherine Gem! This pattern is great for the Advanced Beginner quilter and beyond. Using the freezer paper piecing technique the pieces go together creating the most beautiful Catherine Gem.  There are two sessions for this class. 

MJ Kinman’s second Diamond Diva pattern, “Catherine”, is a joy to create. She was inspired by a spectacular brilliant-cut solitaire that played with the light and transformed that tiny gemstone into a 46” quilt pattern in 3 colorways: White Diamond, Blue Diamond and Champagne Diamond. 

NOT your typical paper piecing!  Freezer-paper piecing techniques are easy to master and result in sparkling quilts. This isn’t foundation paper piecing! Instead, this is traditional quilting using freezer paper as your template. You don’t even have to match points! They just “magically” happen. If you can put two pieces of fabric together with a quarter-inch seam allowance, YOU CAN DO THIS! 

In addition, I’ll show you how you can customize “Catherine” into any colorway you wish, simply by swapping out fabric colors while honoring the progression of values in the pattern. Do you have a special wedding or anniversary coming up? Use the couple’s special colors to create a gift they’ll treasure all their lives. I can help you do that in my upcoming “Catherine” class. See you soon!
