Today on My Design Wall


This is my latest quilt top "Diamond Dishes." It's the first time I've used bright orange since the 1960s, I think! I like it with the retro fabrics, and the yellow inner border calms the orange down a bit. 

I think I'll make a pattern for this while I still remember how to make it. 
It has Y-seams, but it's not too tricky. This quilt measures 45" x 58." No foundations.

That orange really pops - and I don't usually like a lot of orange. Very pretty.

Lovely! I just finished mine like this I posted about on June 13. I followed Sujata's tutorial at The Root Connection blog.

I like the border you added to yours!

Great secondary pattern in orange. It makes me want to look at the quilt in two ways.

What a great design! It's very interesting. Love the addition of the sawtooth border that perfectly sets it off. You did a super job!
