bordered diamonds quilt

I have a quilt to show- my beautiful and colourful bordered diamonds quilt:

I have shown progress photos on here from time to time, such as when I was quilting it:
thurs3
or putting the rows together

or even just trying to work out the best layout:

But, in the past few weeks I have actually trimmed it all up and added the binding as well as a label on the back, so now I can finally say it is finished!

It is a quilt that I started in a workshop with Kaffe Fassett about this time 2 years ago. I used a large range of his fabrics to get maximum variety of lights and darks in the diamonds …

I used a backing fabric which is also a Kaffe print, although a very subdued one in comparison to most of his fabrics…

Because it has a very busy look to it, I took some time deciding on how to quilt it, but eventually decided to use a large swirly line in the middle of the diamonds, stitched-in-the-ditch on the inside edge of the diamonds and a row diagonally down between the diamonds..

I used a blue thread to quilt it and a fuschia-coloured binding…

I love it when I have a finished quilt!
I’m also linking up here to “Off the Wall Friday” – have a look at lots of other lovely finishes for the week.

  1. I love all those prints together and good choice for the binding with all your edge triangles being pink or red, very effective. Great job!
