I'm so excited to have finally photographed a new quilt to share today! I actually have four completely finished quilts folded and waiting for pictures. I decided to start with this happy, colorful version of my Criss Cross Diamond Quilt pattern that I teach in my Craftsy class, Quick Quilt as You Go!
This one was made using my Fleet & Flourish collection strike-offs and a rainbow of coordinating AGF Pure Element solids and blenders for my International Quilt Market space in Houston this past October!
I think the colors look so pretty against the Winter white landscape!
This is the third Criss Cross Diamond quilt I've made now. It's a super fun and quick pattern, plus I love that by simply changing the size of the patchwork, strips, and block size you can create such a new overall look! The color-blocking made such a beautiful effect and really highlighted my colorful Fleet & Flourish collection. I hope you like it as much as I do!
With this QAYG pattern, once you finish making and sew together all of the quilt blocks, you attach the quilt back using very minimal quilting for an extremely quick finish. I used a pale blue Aurifil 50wt and secured the layers by sewing 1/4" from each of the seams that were created when I sewed my blocks together. Easy peasy!
For the binding I chose AGF Prisma Element in Solar Quartz, a beautiful sunny yellow to make the Empire yellow solid I used throughout my quilt really shine!
I especially love this bright yellow combined with the reds & purples in my Fleet & Flourish collection! I'm working on a new quilt right now using this same color combination, so be sure to keep an eye out for it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I wish you all a wonderful, creative start to your week!!
