My granddaughter is such a gem that I purchased the 10 Carat Gems Layer Cake set by Wilmington for her Ball State University graduation quilt. It will sparkle in any place she chooses to use it. I used the tutorial by Jenny in cutting and sewing but did make the quilt much larger than Jenny's. Erin loves optical illusions and fell in love with the quilt as soon as I gave it to her. It was backed with a coordinating Wilmington wide backing and the binding was made of strips of left over fabric sewing together to make the colorful, but matching binding. A fine local long arm quilting friend did the quilting for me.
