Center Diamond Quilt Top

When Mom and I were making the zig zag quilt, we ended up with more half-square triangles than we needed. My sister decided to turn them into this cute baby quilt. She and Mom are working on hand-quilting it now.

Jewelry Quilt Top

I finished the quilt top from my first class I took last month at the Winter Quilt Retreat in Bryce Canyon. I downsized it a bit and made a few changes from the pattern. Here it is:

This is the original pattern from Pat Bravo and Art Gallery Fabrics.
And this is my teacher's version.
Isn't it amazing how changing the placement of colors and prints drastically changes the look of the quilt? We spent almost the entire class session looking at everyone's fabrics and deciding how to best place everything. The environment was really supportive and I think I learned a lot about color, contrast, and print. I wasn't so sure how mine was going to turn out, but I love it now.
