Diamond Detour in Batiks September 24 2014, 1 Comment
We love batiks. In fact, we have quite a large stash collection of them! So, we decided to make a version of the Diamond Detour in our favorite batik color combination. We pulled lime, purple, blue and turquoise printed batiks for the pieced diamonds and a gorgeous beige bubble print for the background.
This color combination matches my parents living room perfectly, so my Mom backed the quilt with a minkee-esk blanket. It will be used to snuggle under as the weather starts to cool down!
My Mom, the amazing talent behind Wolf Creek Quilting, choose to do some simple quilting on this one. She quilted horizontal straight lines across the quilt at varying widths. The quilting creates an amazing texture!
My mom bound the quilt in a gorgeous teal batik. Using a blanket on the backing makes the quilt heavier, so my usual rolled photo for binding looks a little squished.
