#36 purple finish

I finished this quilt last month, but never posted, so here it is.

It was started in May, Purple Diamonds.  I had a few popped seams that are now fixed, so here is the finish.

In the beginning I wasn’t that crazy about the fabric.  It was one of those great buys, but not sure what I was going to do with the layer cake.  Of course for me HSTs when I want a quick quilt and not to much thinking.

I love how the back came out with the simple straight line quilting.  It was my first time using variegated thread and I like it.


Today I am linking up with Live Love Laugh Quilt – Making It Monday and Cooking Up Quilts – MCM

    Hi Jan,
    I think this is great – and that backing fabric. Just perfect for showing off those straight straight-line stitching. Perfecto! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I really like this quilt! The diamond shape is so interesting and I love that they are made with HST’s. What size did you make them? I may have to add this to my “I want to make this” list! And the straight line quilting is *perfect*. Thanks for linking to MCM!

    It looks great! I especially like the fun binding and I think the quilting compliments the design and helps your eye be drawn to the fabrics.

    It’s a very pretty quilt. I’m really impressed with how straight your quilting lines are.
