Red & Blue & Something New : :

My Diamond Weave quilt top is done! It was such a fun project and block, one I know I'll want to use again to create one of the alternate patterns I shared. You can look back through my posts about this project by clicking  HERE. I tried my best to share all the details for those of you who'd like to make one of your own! Yesterday I did some last minute shifting to balance out the darkest shades of blue & coral red, before sewing all thirty-six blocks together, and I'm really happy with how it came together!

Diamond Weave Quilt Top Finish

While I worked on this quilt throughout the last week or so, sewing with shades of red and blue became quite the theme. These recent Fox Pillows are the first I finished using Fleet & Flourish and should be arriving to their new homes any day!

Now I'm ready to start something new! This time I'll be using my Fleet & Flourish purples with AGF Pure Element solids in Cabernet, Verve Violet, Mauvelous, Empire Yellow plus some newer colors I'm really excited to add in -- Turmeric and Aurora Red.

I'm sure more prints from my stash will join the mix, while I work on my plan. There's nothing quite like the excitement of starting something new!

What do you think of this color combo?

  10. Hi Maureen, The quilt looks amazing and I just purchased some of your Fleet & Flourish Fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop!!! (YEAH) I can't wait to get it. I am totally going to try to make that quilt, it looks like a great project. PS I ordered my niece GRACE a Crown from you the other day, for her 7th Birthday!!
    If you have a chance, could you write a post about how you bind your quilts. I always hand sew the back. But you make machine finishing the binding so easy. I would like to write about it on my Blog and use you as a reference... Which I already wrote a really nice post about you and your blog!! Im a huge fan!
    Thanks for a great Blog that is so much fun to read every week,
