Over the years I've experimented with lots of products to
create my giant gem portraits. Here are some of my favorites.

Sulky® 40 wt. Rayon has the same luster and smoothness of silk but is stronger than both silk and cotton. It's my preferred thread for the "wild-motion” machine quilting I use to complete my diamonds. It can also be used in a bobbin when working on projects that need matching bobbin and top thread. And best of all, it's available in 388 colors.

I also use Sulky® Invisible Thread for all sorts of applications. In fact, I used Sulky® Invisible Thread to quilt "Jewel Box" quilt which features all 12 blocks from my Birthstone Series.

I designed the Birthstone Series specifically with Paintbrush Studio's Painter's Palette Solids in mind. With 168 sparkling colors, Painter's Palette Solids literally became the perfect treasure trove from which I selected my gem fabrics.

Since 1980, The Warm Company has been dedicated to manufacturing exciting and innovative products that make sewing, quilting and crafting easier and more enjoyable. I can always count on the Warm Company to produce consistently excellent batting for use in my diamonds. My "go to" product is Warm & White. Its brilliant white color makes my diamonds sparkle and the loft is perfect for my "wild-motion" machine quilting.
