For this hop we were to add a diamond to project or make a project with a diamond. I found a few quilts I wanted to do with diamonds, and chose to do this one. I decided first to make some of the blocks, then decided due to time constraints that I would make a wall hanging. The diamonds for this project were cut at 45 degree angles. It is a fun project to do.
This will be for 2 grandsons for their bedroom. The 4 year old wants his bedroom in blue. In fact, if I make him something he wants blue. So I think I have accomplished that task.
Quilting this was fun. Over the last several months I have been joining Angela Walters at www.quiltingismytherapy.com for her free motion quilting challenge. It has been fun. So, in the diamonds nd trianlgles I did dot to dot quilting. In the squares I did a design called back and forth. In the blue and white border I did wishbone and in the outer border I did a wavy, wavy design. All of the quilting was done free hand, meaning I did not use a computer. The thread used was glide by www.habanddash.com and color is Azure. Glide is my go to thread for quilting. I love the sheen.
I have block pieces cut, and will be working on getting a quilt done for his new bedroom.
Actually, I need to make 2. The 2 year old agrees to blue, but he wants trains. I will be on the lookout for fabrics with trains for him.
Now, let me just say that none of my grandkids are spoilt. Geandma just likes to do things for them.
Please join my other blogger friends to see what they have done.
