Black Diamond Quilt Finish

This quilt was such a fun one to make.  First of all, I have to say that when my friend Becky and I saw this quilt hanging at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe about 5 years ago, we fell in love with it.  It is beautiful!  They had kits made with everything you needed to make one.  We both ended up buying a kit.  We couldn't resist.

Sandy Klop is one of my favorite quilters, she designed this quilt called Black Diamond, using two Jelly Rolls, and some yardage.  It goes together easily, it's just BIG, so it took a long time to put together.

The quilt uses two Jelly Rolls designed my Sandy Klop (American Jane) called Recess.  Here it is 5 years later, complete.  It's one of the biggest quilts I've ever made.

I love the patterns in it, the stars and cubes make it so interesting to look at.  I quilted it on my friend's longarm in a big loop pattern.

I don't visit often but when I do i am always amazed at where you have gone with your quilting. I am so impressed. I remember when you first ventures off, abandoning those of us in the cross stitch world :-), to try your hand at quilting.

You have managed to complete another gorgeous quilt; the fabrics so colorful. I too just completed a quilt kit (hardly ever purchase full kits but this one I couldn't resist) that is currently at the machine quilters. It will be given to my new DIL for christmas. I'll try to remember to let you know when I post a picture of it on my blog.

Hope all is well with you and your family, Heather!
