Diamond Checkerboard Quilt - A finished Quilt


I have a finished quilt to share, in actual fact I had pieced this top and quilted it way back in November, and then it has been sat in the unfinished pile. I have added a binding and ta-daaa, a finished quilt!
Finished Diamond Checkerboard Quilt

I love the fabrics in this quilt. I purchased them on sale some time ago with the plan of makig a quilt for our bed.

However, if I'm honest, I'm more than a little hesitant in finishing a full queen size quilt. I actually have one queen sized quilt top finished and stored away for the day I am brave enough to quilt it and I couldn't bare to add another.  Hence the reason this quilt ended up at 58 inch square.

I chose to quilt it with a simple grid following the seams of the checkerboard and extending them to the edge of the quilt

I backed it with this coordinating green and navy fabric 

As always I finished it with hand stitched binding, this time in a navy solid, it frames the top beautifully.

All fabrics and threads used are 100% cotton

This quilt top can be found for sale in my Etsy Shop - Diamond Checkerboard Quilt


For those that were expecting to see the pixel heart quilt completed you'll be glad to know that I am half way through the quilting - I shared this picture on facebook this morning

  1. What a beautiful quilt, I'm a fan of navy binding too! The heart quilting on your other quilt is really impressive!
