All of the quilts in this book have diamond chains running through the quilts—like Irish chains, but “diamish”… Barbara 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.We 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!
