I showed it in its earlier stages here.
It was made with half-square triangles of warm and cool colours, using Kaffe Fassett fabrics like these:
mini7
The small blocks were placed alternating to form an offset diamond pattern.
mini6
I decided to quilt it with straight-line stitching along the warm colour ‘stripes’, emphasising the diamond shapes, and leaving the cooler sections unquilted.

mini5
I used a pink and white spot for the backing and bound it with a hot pink solid.
mini2
So that’s finished and now ready to send to my Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt Swap partner and hope that she likes it!

This time next week I will be on my way to the USA with a group of friends. We will be going to the Houston International Quilt Festival which was the prime motivator for the trip, but also visiting a few other places on the way. I’ll try and post some photos on here, because I’m sure it’s going to be the best time ever!
Today though a little colour in your day, fresh from our garden:
