What materials did you use? I used Australian Aboriginal fabrics and combined them with Kona Cotton Solids

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.

LOVELY, truly lovely bedquilt, Jackie, befitting of your excellent sense of color and design! Your creative diamond motif of 34 vertical rows of purple alternating with 3 rows of turquoise -- surrounded by alternating larger/wider vertical rows of patterned diamonds in similar hues of purples, hot pinks & blues is unique. I like the lavender background and the fact that you used triangles in the border trim. I'd LOVE this cover on my bed, Jackie!

Thank you so much! I really enjoyed designing this one and using the Australian prints combined with the Kona solids. Can you tell that pink is a favorite color of mine?

should be 4 rows of purple-- not 34!
