Do you ever look at fabric colors and say that they are LUSCIOUS???
That is the word that comes to mind with these….
They are from the “Ruby & Bee” collection by Windham Fabrics and are the subject of a challenge from the Modern Quilt Guild!!
I read about the challenge, saw the fabrics, and decided I wanted to try it!!
As I posted last week, I enjoyed working with 60-degree triangles in the background for my “Vintage Lamb” baby quilt and would like to try some more of them, so why not for this challenge!!
I tried to figure out ways to play with design possibilities and finally decided that the best way was to go “old school”……cut out small diamonds and start moving them around!!
I cut strips of wonder-under and ironed them onto each piece of fabric….
I cut out the piece and fused it onto lightweight interfacing and then prepared to cut diamonds!!
The first step was to sub-cut the strip into three 1-inch strips….
I used the 60-degree mark on my ruler to get an accurate initial cut…..
Once I had that…..
It was quick work to cut at 1-inch intervals all along the strips…..
And, before I knew it, I had tons of diamonds ready to go…..
I pulled out a small, flannel-covered, design board……
…..and now it is time to let the designs emerge….
I can see this being REALLY addictive!!!
