Diamonds In The Rough

Hello Everyone,

Do you remember the quilt that I had on the design wall that I needed to finish?  Well, I am just about there, so I thought I would show you my progress.

I have decided to call it Diamonds in the Rough.


Basically, I just played with scraps of Kaffe Fassett and Kona Cotton White and made Half Square Triangles.  Then laid it on the design wall until I made a design that pleased me.  You can see how I make HSTs by using my tutorial here.


I love the color!


Look...  a very cute quilt inspector has dropped by to check my quarter inch seams.  Looks like the smell okay...


Oh no, a second quilt inspector.  Looks like he might be checking the same seam!! Hmmm... maybe I ought to check them too??


Guess they must have checked out okay, they have decided to sit for a while.



So this is what it looked like before.


Here is what it looks like now.  I think I am going to add some white borders and then quilt it up!

Also, I wanted to ask you all a favor... Would you mind clicking on the heart on my Spring Fling Quilt here on Craftsy?  I have entered it in a contest and the more hearts I have the better chance I have at winning.  Just "Heart" me by clicking on the little heart!  Thank you!!


Until Next Time...

Fabulous quilt top! Cardygirl already got my joke in about the cat scan! They do look like strict inspectors...perhaps there is such a thing as quilt police.

I love your latest quilt design. Anything with Kaffes and whites is always a winner.
And I've clicked on the heart. I'm excited to see more of your work on Craftsy.

I clicked on the heart, but it said I had to open an account. Is there a way to vote otherwise?

Your Kaffe brights look so good with the white! I tried clicking on the heart, but it wants me to sign up for an account. Do you know of a way around that?
