When we moved here last summer, I started getting the Kansas City Star newspaper and was excited to see that they continue to publish quilt projects. Who doesn’t love free quilt patterns? Their 2013 quilt project is called “Rubies, Diamonds, Garnets, Too..” It’s a red and white quilt designed by Bernadette Kent of Calgary, Alberta and contains 13 blocks. I guess there will be two blocks for one month. The first block was in my Sunday paper a couple weeks ago and I finally pulled out my red and white fabrics and got started!
The blocks are fairly big at 12 1/2 inches and this one was easy to make. The directions were easy to follow and there were lots of pictures. If aren’t able to get the Kansas City Star newspaper, you can find the directions on their website. You can also buy a copy of the block as a pdf download at http://www.PickleDishStore.com. I hope you can make this quilt with me.
