    Shine on you Crazy Diamond!

    I named this quilt Crazy Diamond because I think I must have lost my mind in designing it and piecing it! This quilt took many months (I think more than 3). At first I started with 4 inch pieces and realized you would not see the diamonds on the top of the bedspread - it was going to spill so far over the sides you would not see the pattern as a whole so after 12 rows I cut all the pieces down to 3 inches and increased the number per row to accommodate the for smaller pieces. I will post pics after it is quilted on the bed - it looks pretty good!

    The idea came from an ad I saw (small one - it is some companies logo). Using EQ7 i created the design and got to work. The quilt is made up of Triangles, Diamonds, and 1/2 hexagons and ALL of the fabrics are Batiks. For each diamond i used a pair of colors; one a solid watercolor and the other a patterned batik so the quilt did not look so one dimensional.

    I am glad it is done and looks pretty neat even if it did not turn out as 3D as I would have liked. This one is for my bed and is a CA king. I learned a lot about EQ7 in the process so it was a win/win!

    Now if I get just get motivated to cut the quilt backing and take to the LAQ!

        That is stunning. I'm sure you had to keep your wits about you during the process. Fantastic job.

                      It's absolutely beautiful! And plenty 3D! If you quilt in the ditch and more densly in the background, it will come out even more!

                      Do you plan to publish the pattern?
