Diamonds Down Under
InstructionsThis one involves cutting diamonds with a strip piecing technique.
Type of item: Functional
I used Australian Aboriginal fabrics and combined them with Kona Cotton Solids
What was your inspiration?
I love the look of diamonds and wanted to create something unique by just playing with the color. This is were the secondary zig zag came into play and I love the result. I loved it so much, I made it my cell phone case!!
What are you most proud of?
This was a design that I created for Quilt Magazine and it was published last spring! I have been designing and publishing patterns with them for 2.5 years and this is one of my favorite designs.
Also, I am in love with the quilting that I did on this quilt. See the close up photos. I also teach this class.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Choose the right colors to create that secondary zig zag effect.
