A cycle can appear here: if a significant amount of a library is moved to Java Gems, the library will become simple, and it can be merged to or reimplemented in Java Gems subsequently.
Karen Combs has put together a beautiful collection featuring an elegent vine, ombre stripe, lovely dot and basket weave with bold splashes of colors. Java Gems comes in three gorgeous color-ways; Neutrals in colors of cedar, sand, copper and ivory; Harvest in colors of gold, olive, tomato, and ginger; Blue in colors of sapphire, lapis, sky and lilac. Beautiful colors=endless design options!
Karen is also known for her shaded fabrics. She has applied this magic touch in Batik Cascade. Each fabric has a cascade of color flowing gently from light to dark across the width of the fabric. Available in 24 colors, this collection is sure to be a source of endless design inspiration!
Java Gems is not intended to replace all Java libraries ever made, especially huge stable and widely spread frameworks. Java Gems is intended to remove common code from them. Yes, some single-package libraries can be merged or reimplemented.
The pattern for Java Gems, featured in the Winter 2009 issue of Easy Quilts, can be easily adjusted for size. Use this multiple size chart to make this quilt right for you.
