It's a finish and tgifFriday

Hi readers,

It feels so great to have a finish.  I have had this quilt in Progress for a while and it is done.  Yay!! I am also hosting Thank Goodness it is Finished Friday.

This quilt I am calling The Diamond quilt.  So many diamonds and it was a fun quilt to make.    I was inspired to make this quilt when I saw it in the Fall  2016 edition of Modern Patchwork  magazine and the pattern is Yellow on a gray day.

I choose purples, grays, yellow and white for mine.

I quilted the batiks with feathers, and then did kind of straight lines in the white area.

 All fabrics are from

So a refresh on quilt information
