I decided that I better get going on Hannah's 18th birthday/high school graduation quilt. After a lot of cutting I laid out the pieces yesterday. It's too big for my design wall so I had to lay it out on the living room floor - ugh, my body was sore after that one! Maybe I should have paid attention to the size of the quilt - it's going to be my biggest yet. What was I thinking?
I love the colors of the fabrics - it's a Diamond quilt from Kaffe Fassett's book "Kaleidoscope of Quilts". I bought the fabric from Glorious Color, which is owned by Liza Prior Lucy (she works closely with Kaffe on his fabric lines and books).
Now the problem is, I've never sewn diamonds before and I can't figure out how to get the pieces to be even. And it's not clear in the book instructions. I keep sewing and then ripping out the pieces. I think I may have finally solved it . . . we'll see.
There are a lot of pieces to sew together!
