Diamond Chevrons

Introducing a late finish to the February RSC2017 color, aqua, Diamond Chevrons.

Diamond Chevrons quilt

Measuring 33" x 34.5", I am absolutely thrilled to have leftover diamonds gone from the scrap bag!

Quilting uses an aqua variegated thread,


with simple stitching in the ditch, continuing into points in the blue sashing. For me, any more quilting would have detracted from the bold piecing design.


The back is a center pieced paisley print, using more yardage out of the stash - woohoo!


If you ever have the desire to stitch some diamond chevrons, tips on the process can be found on my post Diamonds - Chevron style

Now to add a hanging sleeve, and find a wall to hang it. And yes, I still have a ton of aqua scraps to use. It's anyone's guess as to when I'll get to them!

Happy Quilting!

  6. This is really lovely, and the colors are really rich and beautiful. I don't typically like chevons, but I love this! I think it's because the pattern is broken up so the eyes don't just go in one direction. Really nice!
