Elsie Stone's Diamond Alley Quilt July 24 2014, 0 Comments
Elsie Stone sent us pictures of her gorgeous Diamond Alley quilt and we had to share them! She used assorted red fabrics for the diamonds, ranging from light pink to dark maroon, and a crisp white for the background. She made the Diamond Alley quilt pattern larger by adding 2 more vertical rows, making a total of 39 diamonds, and large white borders that float the diamonds.
Elsie quilted a free-motion swirls and scrolls allover the quilt. I love the texture the quilting gives the quilts. It is that perfect crinkle look! Elsie bound the quilt in one of the red fabrics used as a diamond. Below is a photo of Elsie's fabric placing strategy! I love "in the works" photos like these!
