Book - Rubies, Diamonds and Garnets, Too...
A Sparkling Block-of-the-Month Quilt.

The Ultimate Red & White Quilt!
This full-color 112 page book has a total of 27 block designs. The smaller of the two quilts measures 68" square, while the larger one is 100" square.


The breathtaking sparkle of diamonds and the deep, dramatic reds of rubies and garnets have bewitched us for centuries. They conjure visions of luxury, wealth and beauty. Through time, we’ve used them as tokens of our love and esteem for those we cherish.
Translate those same jewel tones into fabric and you have the makings for an electrifying quilt that, much like a perfect gem, will be handed down for generations.

The quilt was used as The Kansas City Star’s Block-of-the-Month program and highlights 13 block designs. A second version uses the same patterns but gives you the opportunity to make a much larger quilt by adding two more large blocks and 12 smaller blocks.
A beautiful Feathered Star is the focal point of the quilt. The larger version features three different feathered stars.

If the 1" half-square triangles in the sashing look scary, we recommend several options:
1) Use Triangles on a Roll or Star Singles to easily make perfect Half-Square Triangles HST. Click here to see all HST paper options.
2) Create an alternate sashing using strips of a contrasting color rather than the HST.

Backing Idea
We recommend the Marcus 108" wide backing for this project.
