DWTuesday~ Modern Diamonds

Daughter #3’s best friend is getting married in a few weeks and  I wanted to make a throw quilt for the happy couple. Dear daughter gave guidelines, red/black/white and modern. Actually, she said mid-century  modern. But hopefully this is close enough!

Given my marching orders, I started cutting.

I used this die. It is for the GO! cutters but will work in my studio cutter with the white adaptor you can see below.

This makes half rectangle blocks that finish at 3 by 6 inches. Here is my start.

Stay tuned!

PS I wanted to clarify something from my post yesterday regarding the quilt that used a color remover product on. It was not a Color Catcher sheet. I use those all the time and am very pleased with them. 

This was a product made by RIT, the home dye product. I would not recommend this for use on quilts. 


This is the wrong product for bleeding fabrics! I should have known better.

    Question, what do you use for your ‘color catcher’ does it guard all those quilts that have a lot of white with bright colored fabrics? Thank you so much.
