    Diamond Dash -RIO

    I will call this the Diamond Dash -Rio as I made in less than 10 hours, with much less training than some of the Olympians. I used a Kaffee Fassett layer cake and yardage from my stash. It went together fast and was completed in 3 days of sewing during first few days of watching the Olympics.
    Another one in the pile to quilt, when I get my nerve on the Sweet 16.

    That turned out very nice! I have a UFO from Sochi that I worked on last week! Feels good to get to the point I did get to!

              That looks fantastic and fairly easy to do. Thanks.

                Looks great. A suggestion: use a Basic Scroll for the quilting pattern. You can learn how from Jamie Wallen's YT video. Some of those KF fabrics have circles & swirls in them. You can practice on a sample sandwich or a white board. The Basic Scroll or Swirl is one of favorite FMQ patterns. Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy & covers the space quickly.

                    Love it. The green sashing wonderfully ties everything together, and the wavy stripe you used in the border is brilliant.

                        It's actually more blue/turquoise like some of the colours in the fabric.

                          The wavy print is also a Kaffe Fassett print. I bought it at a quilt show recently for $9 /metre. That is about $6.5 US. A treat.

                            Really love your sashing choice here! The border print, is that the Jupiter? I've lusted after that fabric for years.
