rick rack

I’ve been wanting to show you this quilt for some time now! Finally the grass turned green and I was able to snap a few quick photos.

You all know I can’t resist me some Heather Ross, so of course I had to buy some of her new line, Trixie. I’m a total sucker for those strawberries! At the same time, I had purchased a vintage quilt on ebay with this kind of diamond shape, so I thought it would be fun to do my take on that vintage quilt.

These diamonds are larger than those in the vintage quilt I purchased, but similar in shape, in that the sides are not all the same length (does that make it a parallelogram rather than a rhombus?)

I had my fingers crossed that I’d actually be able to sew these together and have it all line up, so I was pleasantly surprised that it went together quite easily!

(ignore all those stray threads!)

At the last minute I decided to add to it to make it queen sized – I think it’ll make a perfect bed quilt for Hazel!

    As always, I love what you come up with!
    You are the one who got me into modern quilting and I am so grateful!
    That was 10 years ago!
    Which tool did you use to cut up the fabric for the pattern? I’d love to see a tutorial!
