"Reclaimed" because the "gems" are cut from whatever suitable bits, in size and in print, that I have left from the very popular Saralisa fabric by Cilla Ramnek.
This and #98 were all I could squeeze out from the off-cuts.
Might go buy more of the fabric. Or I might not.

~ From the first "gem" on the left to the last one on the right: 30cm
