MJ Kinman Bio—

I like to tell people I make the biggest diamonds in the world. The adventure started 22 years ago when an image of a gorgeous gem captured my imagination. As a new quiltmaker, I was unsure how to transform that image into a quilt but knew there had to be a way. I began searching for the right techniques and, seven years later, made my first gem.  

My latest series, entitled “Bourbon Diamonds” celebrates Kentucky’s favorite spirit. My current series is based on the National Gem Collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. 

My first pattern series, The Birthstone Series, is a collection of 12 blocks representing the traditional birthstone gems. My latest series is the Diamond Divas Series featuring large diamond quilt patterns inspired by historical leaders.  Please check out her website for more information.

Workshop Title:   Bite-Size Gems — Create a Small Faceted Quilt

Date:  Saturday, March 19, 2022    Time: 10 AM – 4:30 Eastern 

Bite-Size Gems — In this fast-paced workshop, participants will create their own singularly beautiful work of faceted light using the same single-foundation piecing techniques I use to create my own “diamond quilts”.  MJ will provide a pattern exclusively designed for the Lighthouse Quilt Guild. Students will then learn how to chart the design onto freezer paper; code each piece for color, location, and adjacency; position template pieces onto fabric to achieve the desired light effects; and ultimately create their own unique study in faceted color. Participants will leave the class with an 18” block that can later be hand- or machine-quilted at home.

Length of Workshop:  6 Hours with 1/2 hour for lunch

Skill Level: Confident Beginner to Intermediate

Lecture will be April 11

Workshop will be Saturday April 9
