Who knew?

Sewing the rows took a lot longer than I thought! Of course it’s so big I had to lay it out on the floor and sewing diamonds is a little trickier than blocks. OY VEY! So it’s not perfect but then none of the quilts I make are anywhere close to perfect so that makes it just right!

Squaring it up and attaching the borders are next. I’m trying to make sure it’s not done by Christmas.. it’s not a Christmas present.. it’s a replacement quilt for the one I had already given my niece that wasn’t my best effort.

I really like the look of it.. and I think the borders will set it off nicely.  I’ve decided on an all over quilting pattern. But as yet I haven’t decided which one.. any ideas for me? Next time I won’t make one quite so big! It will end up to be a queen/ full size!

What’s next you ask? Well since I finished painting the dining room I am clear until Christmas! I got my Ellegante two days ago and have played with it.. loads of fun but yes a bit of a learning curve! Looks like I will be making the Christmas tree skirt after all!

    It’s gorgeous, beautiful! What about a simple grid to show off the fabric? I don’t long arm-that might be hard on a long arm, huh?


  2. It looks great! Good luck on the skirt and hope you are doing well.


  3. How beautiful! I have no suggestions on the quilting but I’m sure whatever you do will be pretty!


  4. That is fantastic! I don’t think I will ever want to do anything that complicated!! I do like it, and I have tried smaller items with diamonds, but I’ve never been happy with the way they turn out.
