Diamond Quilt

I have so so many UFOs and so so many pattern ideas. So naturally (having no discipline whatsoever), I began another quilt. It all began with one of the Grand Teint fabrics from Windham that (I'm telling you the God's honest truth) flung itself off the shelf at me at the LQS. I cleverly realized that its diamond-shaped floral motif could be cut as a diamond:

And after only a day and a half of work (I always think these projects will take about an hour tops), made this diamond quilt:

Also obediently kept up with the Stickle blocks (used that neat Tazzie fabric again):

Beautiful quilt! I had to laugh that the fabric flung itself at you. A new danger to watch out for!

Right, watch out for flying bolts! Not to mention the nuts! Lovely quilt. Not what I was expecting.

I have had fabric literally walk out the door and follow me to my car.

Love the diamond fabric.

Wow - what can we do in the face of unruly fabric?? I would have brought it home too - if only to teach it some manners. I love the quilt top you made, it's just adorable.
How fun to see that the paisley fabric is making its way into your projects - I'd never have thought it was 'DJ worthy', but doesn't it look wonderful!

I like the way you centered the diamond shape on the fabric design. It made a beautiful quilt. And I very much understand how those bolts of fabric jump off the shelves.
