Diamond Detour in Lizzy House Basics

It is always fun to see a digital mockup come to life! Last Market, Andover was sneak peeking these gorgeous new basics from Lizzy House. We dropped images of the Mini Pearl Bracelets and Butterflies into a digital version of our Diamond Detour pattern for their sales sheets. 

The fabric is now printed and will be shipping to stores soon, so we got the opportunity to make a real life quilt! Digital quilts don't have the same amazing texture of the fabric and quilting that brings a quilt to life.

Our good friend and fabulous quilter, Juli Kieny, made and quilted this beauty! Juli quilted each pieced and setting diamond with a swirling cloud filler. It gives the quilt that amazing texture we all love! Beware - this post is photo heavy!
