Yellow Diamond Strings : :

Yesterday I finished up another Diamond Strings quilt top using my favorites yet again - April Rhodes' Wanderer and Pat Bravo's Indie, along with my Wild & Free fabrics!

Yellow Diamond Strings Quilt Top

The last one was made in a hurry for a local quilt raffle that turned out to be a huge success, hooray for that! It made it much easier to let that quilt go but, here I am just a couple weeks later already making another! This time I am changing up the design just a little. It's much more scrappy for one! I didn't use a single strip wider than 2."

Wanderer, Indie, Wild & Free

Super Scrappy!

I also didn't start and finish with blocks including the larger cuts to create the sharp angles you'll see at the tops and bottoms of my other Diamond String quilts. Instead, this time I began and ended each of my qayg blocks with a few strips of the warm, golden yellow that all three of these collections include.

Choosing that one color to begin and end with really makes all the wonderful diamonds that are created within this pattern pop!

I'm always so amazed at how the slightest change in a pattern can create something so new and different, even when using the very same colors and prints. These three collections just speak to me, I can't seem to get enough of them! Hopefully you all don't mind!

I'll be sending this one off to be photographed and shared along with an article I'm writing on quilt-as-you-go for a magazine due out this Fall, and then I have plans to make it our porch swing quilt!

Oh, and if you love these fabrics together as much as I do, the Intrepid Thread still has some of their custom bundles available that were inspired by these quilts right HERE!! XX

  6. I like how you put the yellow/gold at the ends. Draws your eye to the center diamond, but also racing to follow all the other diamonds. LOVELY!

  15. I'm so intrigued by your diamond shaped blocks. I've done your herringbone QAYG quilt. What size are these blocks and is it the same technique? It's gorgeous!

    1. Berbicara tentang vitalitas erat kaitannya dengan pria, baik itu dari hubungan yang kurang greget dalam urusan ranjang dan meranjangkan Istri di kasur Anda. Maka sebagai alternatifnya para pria suka mencari tambahan supplement guna untuk hasil / explore dalam hubungan intim. Seperti Penis-nya kurang besar dan atau pun tidak kuat alias udah ejakulasi dini.
