Sweet Diamonds Top Finish

Ta Da!  Even though I have been busy getting the new brick and mortar location for Pink Castle Fabrics ready (soon!  very very soon!) I somehow managed to finish a quilt top.  Back in September of last year I started this quilt.  I couldn’t sleep one night and I was browsing Pinterest on my iPhone (as I do most nights) and I decided to just get up and start making a quilt.  I really liked this quilt and I just started pulling fabrics.  It’s a pretty simple and traditional pattern but I wanted to take it a more modern and bright direction.

I’m very excited with the way it turned out.  And I’m really loving the Spot On tiny dots from Robert Kaufman.  I used them here for the sashing and the small black squares.  It’s really a great size dot and very “in” right now in fashion.   Here’s a closer photo for a better view of the sashing:

My sister is already trying to claim this quilt.  We’ll see Lauren!  Now to decide how to have it quilted…

Also!  if you don’t already own the Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters: 60 Blocks + a Dozen Quilts and Projects!
