A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.

This quilt top comes from a class I took a year or 2 ago. We made turned regular blocks into diamonds and created the 3-D blocks from those. The class included fabric for 1 block - which I managed to stretch to 2. Then they sat for months waiting for me to find other options to go along with the original fabric.
I finally pulled some out, took it to a retreat and made a few more blocks. The 3 9-patch blocks are where I got tired of doing the work to translate triangles into half-diamonds :)
I used an ombre fabric for the background, and matched it up (as best i could) to shade the same way the light is falling on the blocks - light in the upper right, and darkest in the lower left. It's a nice lap size quilt, and now it just needs to be quilted - hopefully sometime this year as part of my UFO challenge.
