||This is an idea
of mine for a quick quilt. Yes, quick! What you do is follow
the directions for the stripped lone star through to making the giant template,
(link 5 below) except you don't strip piece
To make this, cut the eight big diamond sections from a solid piece of cloth to showcase the print. Cut four squares and triangles from a coordinating print, add some borders and you are done!
An easy quilting design is to just quilt around the motifs in the fabric and something in the borders and you are done.
You can make it baby size, bed size or a square wall quilt.
love big splashy floralandanimal
fabrics, handdyes in which the colors are absolutely fabulous. And
how about those batiks that represent fish or fauna and especially tropical
prints. And the African fabrics?? wow, would those be great!
These gorgeous fabrics will make the quilt, you don't need an intricate block design. And, if you chop these large scale prints up into little pieces you loose the beauty of the fabric, so why not just showcase the fabric with great big diamond star points and a simple design?
imagine how quick this will go together! The results will be stunning...it
will take only a few hours to cut and piece this quilt once you make the
giant diamond template!
An easy way to quilt this... just quilt around the motifs, be they flowers, birds, fish, or other flora and fauna. Quilt the same designs in the borders...you will like it!
