Nothing like a finish on a Friday, right? I’ll admit this has been finished for a while, I just dragged the chain on taking some photographs. Luckily my resident tall person helped me out so that I can show you my lap-sized Diamonds in the Deep quilt (pattern can be purchased here).
I am very drawn to two-colour quilts and wanted to try this pattern in blue – I chose Kona’s Celestial and Snow. This quilt actually gave me the quilt pattern name – to me the diamond centres of the block looked like they were bubbling up from the deep water to the sea foam on top. (Imagine the photo above upside down. Here, I’ll do it for you:)
This quilt marks the first time I engaged the services of a long arm quilter. I am extremely fortunate to have the lovely Quilt Jane living 20 minutes drive from me! She tested a few different patterns before settling on a swirl that works very well with the water theme of the quilt.
All-over quilting will add a new dimension to this quilt as it will always show quite clearly at one of the ends – there’s really no way to find a thread that will blend into both fabric colours. I love the effect and thank Jane for her wonderful contribution to this quilt.
So, any finishes for the rest of you? Maybe one planned for the weekend? Whatever you get up to, I hope you have a wonderful time (and hopefully a little sewing, too!)
