The Birthstone Series by MJ Kinman



There are 12 beautiful birthstone blocks waiting for you in this fun block of the month.  All blocks are created using a technique called single-foundation piecing (not typical paper piecing) but each has it’s own challenge. Each month’s pattern contains a fully coded freezer paper template, a full scale paper key, and a 12 page pattern booklet.  Each block is a bold 17” block when finished and joined by black sashing that makes them seem to float to make a quilt.  Pattern and a fat quarters kit is required each month to complete the block. (Please do not use spray starch or best press on your fat quarters.)

Participants must complete the 6 hour technique class prior to signing up for the monthly block.
