Andrea Tsang Jackson guides readers through transforming the beauty, allure and power of natural stones into glittering complex patchwork quilts. Using her expert tips and tricks and her step-by-step process to master a plan for the colour work required to achieve transparency and light through fabric selection, readers will paper-piece their way to a jewellery box of blocks.

  • A peedy chain-piecing technique for paper piecingNine basic 12 inch' gemstone blocks
  • Graded patterns to create the perfect finished block size
