Aged Like Fine Wine

If you’ve been following my blog you have seen several variations I could have done with these diamond units.

All of the ones I have shown to this point were traditional and logical.

Had I made these units into something 15 years ago when I made most of them I certainly would have chosen one of them.

In the intervening years I have started thinking farther “out of the box”!

I’ve had this idea for a while and finally was able to execute it this week.

My original idea used different proportions. This is one reason why a design wall is so important.

You can SEE when something works and also when it doesn’t work.

I am so pleased with this top and hope to layer and quilt it very soon.

The pattern has so much depth! I can feel light entering from the top and trickle through the design. Beautiful.
