My Quilted Diamonds Quilt


We finally found the pictures taken of it when it was finished and before it was basted. (That’s me with the blonde hair on the right.) This will be the next quilt in the hoop. It has been basted by a long-arm quilter and I really can’t wait to get started on it! I’m still debating just exactly what I’ll quilt in the plain setting diamonds. All the diamond patterns from Quilted Diamonds 2 are in it along with a few from Quilted Diamonds 1. If you haven’t seen those two books, they’re absolutely fabulous books — amazingly well done and incredibly full of helpful tips and information. It was sheer joy making each and every one of those wonderful little diamonds. Here’s a close-up of a few of them.


I‘ll post a few more pictures of individual diamonds over the next few days. There are some that make me smile the second I look at them.

  1. Thanks for the over-all picture! This is one great quilt top!!! Gorgeous! And a real inspiration to keep on stitching diamonds :o) I’ll give the QD2-4 a try one day I have time (and nerves *lol) to cut and stitch all those triangles… Take care and enjoy your quilting!Hugs…

  2. Your quilt is spectacular. I love all the color in the blocks and in the hand dyed fabric (batik?) you chose to border each block. The whole quilt sparkles with color. Thank you for hunting this picture down.

  3. Your diamond quilt is gorgeous! I’ve only made about 25 diamonds of my own. I don’t know how to email you, but would you please email me about having your quilt basted by the long-arm quilter? I’d like to have some of mine done too.
