Meet Garnet!

I made a baby quilt from someone else's pattern this week. Meet Garnet --


The pattern  is Sapphires and Rubies from Needyl. I didn't use her technique for four-at-a-time flying geese and my attempt to recreate the measurements didn't come out quite right, so I've lost the points on my gems and they don't line up the way hers did. I also left of a row of gems to make the quilt a bit smaller. If I make it again, I think I'll follow the directions better. Or make the gems scrappy by piecing them from 2 1/2" squares. Wouldn't that be cute? 

The fabric I used for the brown gems is left over from the backing of the turtle quilt. I thought I had enough to back this quilt too, and I did. If you consider 1/2" extra around each edge to be "enough."  I pinned and quilted very carefully and it worked.
