Bed Size Quilts - Diamonds Streak o Lightning
[ previous | home | next ]

Diamonds - streak of lightening: double bed size, professionally quilted by Signature Quilts. this quilt was given to a friend from law school. I wanted to do a streak o' lightening design, so my husband devised this irregular diamond pattern. the pattern was drawn beforehand on squared paper so that I knew how to sew each block. The border adds an extra bit of visual interest to this quilt, i think. I had to patch the top and the bottom border as I couldn't fit the pattern exactly across the width of the quilt. This is one of my husband's favourite quilts, perhaps the one he likes best (so far...).

This picture was taken outside in winter, with associated shadows.
