Happy Friday! The first of the string diamond quilts is done! There are 3 of these, which were made from blocks collected during the December blocks drive for Covered in Love. The response to the end of the year block drives were so overwhelming that I actually had to take January off to catch up. BUT, I'm ready to go again. The link to February's block drive is at the end of this post.
Unfortunately I failed once again to wake up early enough to get the really good light, so we have to deal with some sun flare in the pictures. These pretty, swirled string blocks I quilted with spiral squares in matching thread colors. I did the in between brown diamonds, too, so the quilting ended up quite dense.
The quilt measures 60" square. For the backing I used a white print that is busy enough to hide all the places my tensions wasn't quite perfect with the colored threads.
On the back are the labels, one for CiL and one listing the names of everyone who contributed blocks that month.
February's block is an easy one, a traditional split nine patch in nice earthy colors. Be sure to check out the link if you want to participate.
