F112 – Create Catherine, MJ Kinmans 2nd Giant Diamond Diva

$70.00

MJ Kinman

Location:

One day

Friday, January 22nd 2021

From 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM

 


Kit Fee $80.00



Class Type: Domestic Machine Work

Skill Level: Intermediate

Description: Let’s make my new Diamond Diva together! “Catherine” is the second pattern in my freezer-paper pieced Diamond Divas series, a round brilliant cut solitaire diamond pattern that is 48” in diameter. When finished with a border, the finished quilt is 5-feet square. “Catherine” is available in two colorways: White Diamond and Champagne Diamond. The exciting feature of this pattern is that you can customize “Catherine” to include your own color palette. Is there a wedding or anniversary in your future? You can incorporate the couple’s celebration colors into a wonderful quilt! This isn’t paper piecing! The question I get asked most frequently is, “Is this foundation paper piecing?” No! This is traditional piecing using freezer-paper facets as your templates. Freezer paper is the amazing product used by all kinds of crafters that adheres to fabric yet can be removed without leaving a residue. You don’t sew to a paper foundation, so you don’t have to claw bits of paper out of the back of your quilt. Can I do this? The second most-frequently asked question is, “Is it difficult?” Again, the answer is No! If you can put 2 pieces of fabric together with a ¼-inch seam allowance, you can make this quilt. Seriously. Here’s why: • Precision is not a priority with my patterns. You don’t have to worry about perfectly matched seams in my designs! Why? Because light doesn’t follow quilters’ rules. Gems couldn’t care less about the Quilt Police! • There are two identical sets of patterns in every package: one to cut up (the freezer paper), and one to pin to your quilt studio wall that will serve as your “treasure map”, helping you put the pieces back together. • I’ve created a Piece Plan that is available on my website if you like a little more direction. This document tells you exactly which pieces to put together into units and sections. You can do this. Better yet, let’s do this together at Road@Home!
