Applique Diamonds Quilt

I had this vision for this pattern for a while, but couldn't decide which fabrics to use. Once I saw Desert Blooms by Maude Asbury, I knew it would be perfect! The diamond shape and size really shows of the beauty of these fabrics.

This quilt top goes together quickly, and its easily customizable. Want it a little larger? Add more diamonds. Want it framed? Add a large outer border!

Desert Blooms collection is so fun to work with. I hope you enjoy making this quilt as much as I did.


    To make this quilt, you will need:
    • 5 fat quarters for diamonds
    • 3 yards for background
    • 3/4 yard for binding

    • 4 yards for backing
    • Batting at least 60" x 70"
    • Thread
    You will also need:
    • A rotary cutter
    • A rotary cutting ruler
    • Cutting Mat
    • Fabric scissors
    • Fabric marking pen
    • Pins or clips
    • Fabric glue stick


    The finished quilt size is 53" x 63”.

    I did the binding a bit different for this quilt. Since I decided to just do a small white border, I wanted the binding a little bigger to better frame the quilt. So, I cut the binding wide, and I used a wider seam allowance to sew it on. I love how it came out!

    This was my attempt at a "blowing around in the wind" action didn't exactly go as planned!


    Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for following along with me.
