Like most of central Europe, we're having a mini heatwave here, with temperatures in the low 30's. It's much to hot for me to do anything much. Certainly not basting the Diamond Falls quilt which now has a back
The diamonds are twice the size of those on the front. I got the idea from Elizabeth Hartmann's quilts in her book Modern Patchwork, but I'm not sure if it works so well here. Oh well, I had to do something as I didn't have enough of the patterned fabric, and I'm sure it'll grow on me! My sister-in-law will be here for a few days, and the weather should cool down a bit, so I'll get her to help me baste it. Two pairs of hands make lighter basting!
In the meatime, I've made some more of these blocks
But I'm unsure whether to do the sashing in grey
I think maybe white sashing would lose the impact of the white strips in the block. So maybe a skinny strip around each block in grey, then white sashing. What do you think? Oh and I need a name for it too, please!
