Bordered Diamond Quilt Finish

I'm still here! I'm nearly caught up with my long list of things that needed to get done!  I did manage to sneak in some time to finish this quilt started at the workshop.  I didn't want to leave it too long to finish so that I would keep the momentum I had from attending the class with Kaffe Fassett. 

I have to say, that though this quilt looks so deceivingly simple in design, there is actually quite a bit involved.  I had it on the design wall for two weeks, cutting and adding to it, rearranging the layout nearly everyday before I was satisfied enough with the layout to sew it up.  Perhaps I did get to the stage where I started to over think the process, but I feel like I learned a lot from making this quilt.  I may try it again in a different colour combination to see if the process is easier the second time around. I also feel inspired to finish off some old Kaffe Fassett projects started years and years ago and possible start another one!

Hi, tried to leave a comment in Bloglovin platform, but it wouldn't let me. I absolutely love this quilt. You did a fantastic job with it! I couldn't believe when it said you had no comments. You should probably check it out. Too gorgeous for words.

This is a lovely quilt. I don't think it would be any easier second time round. I've made a bordered diamonds quilt myself and it took a long time - mind you I made mine even bigger to fit a queen sized bed. Your's looks great in Kaffe fabrics.

It's just gorgeous Jeannette. You should be really stoked with how this quilt has turned out. I so wish I'd been along to see Kaffe Fassett while he was in Australia as I really love using his fabrics. Very jealous! Thanks for sharing this quilt with us all......

I love this quilt! Gorgeous colors, and I spot both Kaffe and Anna Maria Horner, and they seem to really get along well! I also love the color combinations you did, on the diamonds. Did you have any special thoghts or ideas that you followed, while you were doing the color combinations?
Once again, I love it!!!

I also did a workshop with Kaffe a few weeks ago so congratulate you on nailing the lessons! I am still struggling with balance...
Great quilt. So suits Kaffe's fabrics too.

I've always wanted to make a Kaffe Fasset bordered diamonds quilt - this is so beautiful. I think I better start collecting fabrics :-)

Beatiful! It is realy a blig splash of colour on my screen! I know choosing is sometimes overwhelming I think. sometimes during my last project I sometimes closed the door of my sewingroom on purpose, just to get some rest :)

This reminds me of home, Jeannette! I agree with Cindy Dahlgren. This quilt is just "too gorgeous for words."
