Sneak Peek! Diamond Chain Quilts … And a Giveaway!

Diamond Chain Quilts by Barbara Cline for C&T Publishing

Barbara Cline, the best-selling author of Simply Triangles and Star Struck has released her 3rd book with C&T Publishing, called Diamond Chain Quilts—and she just keeps getting better and better!

Diamond Chain Quilts by Barbara Cline for C&T Publishing All of the quilts in this book have diamond chains running through the quilts—like Irish chains, but “diamish”…  Diamond Chain Quilts by Barbara Cline for C&T PublishingBarbara lights up traditional pieced quilts with the drama of diamonds—and shows you how to create complex looks by combining diamonds with easier-to-piece shapes like triangles and trapezoids.Diamond Chain Quilts by Barbara Cline for C&T PublishingWe asked Barbara if she had a favorite quilt in the book, and the one pictured above, named ‘Diamond Trail’ came to mind.  What makes this quilt unique, explains Barbara,  is the depth it creates.  The diamond chains which run through a triangle base layout (though it reads like a diamond!), look like they are riding down a ridge in the middle of a diamond.

Giveaway! We are giving away a copy of Diamond Chain Quilts to one lucky winner! International winners will win the e-book version. The giveaway closes on October 10th. Good Luck!

    I buy books for so many reasons, I certainly would for a triangle. They have been hard for me to sew accurately.

    The design is so intricate looking and I am sure there are dozens of ways to use this design. I’d love to win a couple and try my own diamond chain quilt
