I have resisted for many years, but the flurry of Hidden Gems quilt blocks I have seen has tipped me over the edge. I have given in and one of my 2017 projects will be joining the Scraphappy gang at So Scrappy. I am a long time visitor to the blog and often see the fun everyone is having with their scraps. The Hidden Gems pattern was one of the first 'Pins' I pinned on Pinterest several years ago and these are the first four blocks completed in purple fabrics - not without pain, but complete nonetheless. The blocks are 4" square.
Leftovers from a Dear Jane quilt
With all the pieces for my Dear Jane quilt cut I still have ALL THIS Kim Diehl fabric left over. Clearly I didn't want to run out of the fabric. I probably have enough remaining fabric to make several Dear Jane quilts, but instead I will be turning them into a Hidden Gems quilt over the next 12 months, following the colour guidance of SoScrappy.
