Community Quilt 20

23 10 2012

The next quilt top I worked on at the retreat was one I called ‘fractured diamonds’. None of the other girls liked it, and I wasn’t too fussed about either the fabrics used or the offset diamonds. However, it was a quilt top that needed quilting, so the only decision I had to make was how to quilt it.

Glenys suggested that I do diamond ‘spirals’, so I did — on all the diamonds (blue water fabric, autumn leaves brown fabric, and the cream areas in between). I used variegated threads for the coloured diamonds and a plain cream thread for the background.
