This quilt was made for Dear Stella's booth at Quilt Market, out of their Clementine collection. I used the Must Stash pattern from the book Modern Designs for Classic Quilts (speaking of which, I'll be giving away a copy of the book very soon!).
I quilted straight lines across each of the diamonds to resemble kites, and then did free motion loops through the sashing to look like the kite strings. The FMQ was definitely a learning experience for me, but after practicing on some scraps, I did get the hang of it. It's not perfect but thankfully the quilting is dense enough to mask most of my mistakes (or at least, that's what I'm telling myself!). The quilting really made the diamonds pop off the background.
It's bound in the same Stella Solid White as the sashing to blend in with the background.
The back is this gorgeous Summer Floral print from the collection, which gives a nice contrast to the white on the front of the quilt!
I'm really hoping someone will take a picture of this hanging up at market for me, since I'm not going to be able to go!
Thanks Dear Stella for the opportunity to make this quilt! Check out their post on this quilt on their blog.
