diamond baby quilt

diamond quilt

I pieced diamonds!  I made this little quilt for a friend’s new baby girl.  I found all the fabrics for the top in my stash, then designed from there.  I had a lot of fun doing something new and love how it turned out.

I had to buy fabric for the back and binding, though, so I tried a new quilt store.  Snappy Quilts was full to the brim with my favorite designs, and I came out with some Joel Dewberry fabrics that went with my top perfectly.  It was expensive, though.  It seemed all of their fabric was closer to $12/ yard than the $9 or $10 I’m used to.

Of course, I quilted it in swirls.

Anyone have some tips on photographing quilts?  I’d love some advice because I’m just not thrilled about my quilt photos lately…

  1. LOVE IT!!!! And hooray for a fun new fabric store–I’m still looking for a Fancy-tigerish one here. I could see this store being a stop on the way to Denver Fabrics (another store that I haven’t found a good replacement for). That would be a dangerous day for my budget, but oh so fun for me!

  2. Wow you have been quite the quilter lately. Love the diamonds. I quilted my big chicken/circle quilt Saturday and bound it last night. If it is not raining tonight I will take a picture. Can’t wait for you to see it in person though. It turned out way cool. Thanks for helping with the funding for it :-)
    Love, MOM
