Finish It up Friday ~ Modern Diamonds!

Red/black/white week is coming to an end!  This certainly was a fast finish! Sometimes,  that is just what you need for a little motivational boost.

All the top fabrics came from my stash, but I did purchase the backing since I couldn’t find anything at home that I liked.

I used Candy Apple Red Glide thread in both the top and the bobbin.

The above pictures were  taken before washing. The rest are after.

It crinkled up nicely! I love the texture from the quilting.


I hope the happy couple likes it!

    Love this quilt, Katy! I have said it before, but I think simple shapes produce some amazing quilts and this is no exception! I typically use as many different fabrics in a quilt as possible, but the use of only a few fabrics in this one yielded the modern look you were going for….well done!!
    And the quilting was perfect!
    I am sure this will be a treasured gift and the happy couple will enjoy using it for many years to come….Thanks for sharing!!
