Pretty Diamonds.

Ahhh. Kids in bed. Dinner cooked for a friend. Quilt finished. It's been a good day.
And while I didn't take photos of weary, grumpy children or lentil soup, I did get some pictures of my new quilt, which was, I have to say, the most photogenic of the three!
So sit back and let me show you...
Pretty Diamonds.
 A few months ago, a lovely, crafty friend of mine gave me a Kaffe Fassett quilt book because she had two. I got to work on this one straight away. And although I love the effect, it will be a long time before I make a quilt from 3" squares again! It's such a soft, light quilt! Filled with bamboo batting, it's completely breathable.

 Can you see the line of blue diamonds in the picture above? I used blue and yellow diamonds horizontally and light and dark pink in alternate vertical rows. I think it's really subtle and pretty. Don't you?

Then I hand-quilted around half the squares, following the little designs in the fabric.

This quilt will be for sale in Tickle & Hide on in just a few short weeks (fingers crossed!) when I launch my new online store!


I so love your comments! I read all of them and reply when I can. If you don't hear back, I'm lost under a mound of scraps or outside jumping on the trampoline with the kids. Jodi. xx
