You deserve riches, dahling. It's true! So here's a jewel-encrusted pillow to lean on while you write your racy memoirs. And unlike the real thing, these applique jewels are quite comfortable for leaning, sitting, and otherwise lounging. ...Not to mention, making these jewels is an intriguing experience in English paper piecing with odd shapes. If you've only tried EPP with hexagons, this pattern is a great way to stretch your skills. Once you've made your nine gemstones, you'll arrange them on a quilted "setting" and applique them by hand. It's all very impressive-looking, but the techniques are actually quite simple. This pattern is loaded with illustrations that will help your piecing and applique turn out beautifully. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Thread a needle Sew a straight machine seam

I'm a big, crafty geek who'll make anything once. These days I'm besotted with English paper piecing, plastic canvas, and home-roasted coffee.
