Bordered Diamonds

The Bordered Diamonds quilt from my Kaffe Fasset workshop is finished, complete with hanging sleeve and label.  I had decided to quilt it with purple Magnifico thread by Superior, but when I went to buy it at Anita Zoben's Open house, she suggested orange!  The quilt 'wanted' orange!   I braved organic line quilting after asking Jacquie Gering for advice.  I am very happy with the way it turned out.  There are 102 organic lines in the quilt :-).  The finished quilt (this is not the greatest photo; hope to take one outside and will update it):

 The organic line quilting and binding:

The organic line quilting really gives it texture, but it is not stiff:


 The quilt gives me wonderful memories of a fabulous class with Kaffe Fasset and Brandon Mably.

Oh, Jacqui, this turned out so beautifully! I love everything about it and think the orange thread was an inspired choice. The backing is perfect too. Love, love, love.

Els said...

I do like the quilting! Is it easy to learn for a beginner?

The quilting with orange looks wonderful. How exciting to take a class with Kaffe Fassett. I made this quilt when it was in a magazine, but then bought the book it's in too because I wanted to make the ST. Mark's quilt and the Bicycle quilt.
