Diamond Quilt

I've just completed a lovely baby quilt that happens to look very similar to a quilt I did earlier this year, Danielle's quilt, without the border.

 I wanted to give it a pieced back, which makes it fully reversible, I think.
This time instead of piecing each diamond from one large printed square and four smaller white squares (in Flying Geese fashion), I simply cut squares and arranged them with strips to form a diamond pattern.  It came together much quicker and used much less fabric.  This picture isn't lined up perfectly, but you get the idea.

And this is the finished product, fresh and crinkly from the dryer.  It's super soft and ready for snuggling! :)


  1. really beautiful! I love all the soft colors. :)


    (I'm busy making Christmas gifts -- and all of them happen to be in drab, dark colors -- think camo -- I could use some of this!)

  2. This is really beautiful! It's simple and elegant! I love seeing quilts with a lot of white and just a bit of color! It goes to show you that you really don't need a ton of yardage of beautiful fabric to make make a fabulous quilt!! This really is pretty!

  3. I love it! Great fabric choices...

  4. So clever! Thanks for showing how you laid this quilt out. I am planning on using a lot of white in my next quilt - it looks so crisp and modern.
