Purple Diamonds!


It's finally finished! This started in February as my block for Make it Modern. They did such a great job that I decided to double the number of blocks to make it big and snuggly. This quilt is for my daughter who "loooves purple". So I got a photo of her with the quilt.


I was about 80% done with the blocks when she informs me she likes pink more than purple. So I added the pink diamond to add a little pop.


The obligatory back shot (with my assistant playing peekaboo).


This was a fun one to play with my quilting. It's still a little shaky, but it was good practice and i"m happy I did it. It would have been way easier on a longarm. I did swirls on the zigzag and some ovals on the diamonds.



Thank you to all the lovely ladies of Make it Modern and my friend Denise who also added a block for getting this quilt started. Sam and I love it!

I love it - also the mother of a big purple fan here. She has been asking about a new quilt, perhaps I'll show her yours!
