I have been wanting to make a bordered diamond pattern for quite some time now. So, I figured I'd keep with the diamond theme from my last post (Desert Diamonds) and try it out now.
The Floralish collection is absolutely perfect for this. Not only do these fabrics make gorgeous throw pillows, but this pattern showcases the beauty of each fabric. And I just love how all these fabrics work together! I mean - cranes, fruit and flowers?? I love it all!
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.
Scrappy Stars Quilt has been in the making for quite sometime. I've had a vision in mind of what I wanted it to look like, and with lots of doubt and questioning of my vision, it took a lot longer than it should have!
I do love how it came out. The fabrics in each star and in each background hold a lot of memories for me, and for that I will always cherish this quilt.
To make Scrappy Stars, you can either use scraps, fat quarters, yardage, etc. or you can use precut charm packs or layer cakes.
