I have always wanted to create a ROYGBV quilt and it finally came together this year. This is also hanging at Fall Market in the Island Batik booth using their new fabrics from the Sea Salt Sandy Collection.
My quilt design is called "Dangling Diamonds" and uses Bella Nonna Design Studio's Boondoggle Rulers.
Here are a few details of how I quilted it. With all the angles in the piecing, I wanted to create some twirling effects. I created a card stock template of this shape and traced it into each large background diamond as I went. It is with a purple disappearing ink pen, so it doesn't stay there long.
I used two layers of 80/20 bleached batting. I love the relief where it is NOT quilted.
