My client, Nancy, likes to give her quilts to me and let me quilt whatever I want on them. Personally, I get nervous about putting whatever I want on another person’s quilt, because you never know how she or he will react of if she or he will even like it. But, she’s a trooper and a sweetheart for liking what I have done so far. Her latest quilt was made with diamond blocks. It’s quite striking, don’t you think?
But how on earth would you quilt it? I decided that since diamonds are a girl’s best friend, roses must be the next best thing. So, why not quilt some roses inside those diamonds?
In the border I quilted roses and leaves.
Here is the backside, where you can see the quilting better.
A lot of people would have just quilted an allover edge 2 edge design on this, but for some reason I thought those white diamonds in the middle really needed something. How about you? What would you have done and how would you have quilted this quilt with diamonds?
