Diamonds & Drama Queens Block of the Month (12 Months of Gems)


The world’s most fabulous gems have often been owned by the world’s most intriguing, eccentric, and outrageous people. Join me for a wild ride through the world of famous gems in my first Block of the Month program — Diamonds & Drama Queens.

Throughout this 12-month adventure (starting April 1, 2021 and continuing through March 1, 2022) I’ll share monthly patterns inspired by these gorgeous gems, as well as stories about their history and owners. Some are stories of great love, others tell of intrigue and treachery, while others reveal lives of loss and sadness. Regardless, I hope you’ll learn a great deal and enjoy the journey!
