Stars and Diamonds - Bloggers Quilt Festival


Welcome to my Bloggers Quilt Festival Spring 2011 post.  I hope you enjoy - this is the first time I have participated in Amy's Bloggers Quilt Festival.

I really liked the quilting motif I did in the diamonds of Barb’s quilt (click here to see the post), but hadn’t had the opportunity to do them again since her quilt.  So I decided to make something for myself where that quilting motif would work.  

I started piecing this quilt late last year, finished the top in January and I quilted it in February this year. I have just finished the binding.

I still have the label and hanging sleave to do and then it will be finally finished.

I will be posting soon on how I blocked this quilt.
