Diamond Quilt finish

I got in another finish in 2014 that I never got a chance to blog about. This one will be hard to talk about because honestly, it took me so long, I don't remember much about it! I started this quilt in 2013 after I started back to work. This quilt was planned to match the colors at work so I could hang it in my office.

When I pulled this out of my WIP pile this year, I had labeled the backing with Fall 2013.  Whoops! It sat in my sewing room for a year finished, back constructed, but un quilted!

I also don't remember the pattern I used. I know this was a really old pattern and it was paper piecing. I remember struggling with this because when I made copies of the one block, it must not have been laying flat on the machine. I think there were some slight bends because it got a little fiddly as I was putting it together. As a result, it is not the most flat wall hanging. But only you and I know that! ;)

I did have a lot of fun with the quilting on this one. I practiced my fmq on this in the green parts and then did a pattern I got from Angela Walters latest book Shape by Shape. Side note - fantastic book, highly recommend it!

As always you can see the quilting much better on the back. My straight lines need a little more work, but I was pretty happy with my stippling!

So there you have it!  Sorry for the lack of information. It's now been taken to work and hangs in my office.

Don't be silly, you don't mean 'not flat' you mean 'textured' ;o)

It sure turned out beautiful. I love the design and the fact that the pattern was 'old' but it looks for fresh and modern!
