Diamond Square Scrap Quilt

Diamond Square Quilt

I finally finished my scrappy diamond squares quilt.  Gardening, canning and visiting with friends have taken over my free time lately, with little left  for sewing.  But I managed to squeeze this project in over the past few weeks.  I picked a neutral navy background for my scrappy squares, hoping they would really pop, and I like that this took me in a more modern direction.  I experimented with allover straight line quilting, which quite frankly took forever and was a pain in the ass.  Also, I should really call this “organic stripe” quilting not “straight line”, since who am I kidding, there is nothing straight about these lines.  But they still look purdy and I love the extra scrunchy-ness of such close quilting.  If I had it to do over again I would have quilted a different pattern over the solids versus the pieced bits, so live and learn.

Finished quilt is about 40×50.  And I love absolutely everything about the Juliana Horner backing fabric.  I also love the tiny half square triangle borders.  Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for a finish it up Friday.

    This is such a great quilt. I like the ‘organic’ quilting on the blue background.
