EPP Diamond Star Quilt - A real progress post!


This is how my quilt 'slabs' are looking at the moment, they are starting to cover the queen sized bed.

I currently have 6 x slabs and 5 x half slabs.  I intend on having a 5 x 3.5 configuration:

Quilt Stats so far:

  • 408 diamonds sewn into 6 pointed stars
  • 136 hexagons 
On hand I currently have
  • 'lot's' of basted diamonds
  • 23 half stars
  • 14 full stars
  • 3 basted hexagons - I ran out of white fabric, but I have now rectified this!!
To complete the quilt I need:
  • 46.5 stars or 279 diamonds
  • 141 hexagons
I also plan to put a white 5-10 inch border on so that will be even more white diamonds and hexagons, but I haven't quite worked out the configuration for that yet - I'll just have to save that for another day.

  1. I love the way the white sets off your fabrics - so light and colourful.

  2. The pieces look great! I cant wait to see how they grow...

  3. This will be a real beauty, I'm sure. It reminds me of parts of a jigsaw laying there, and is set off nicely by the aqua under it. Perhaps a backing idea?

  4. Oh my goodness! the work in this one! well done for the ambition, as well as the execution!

  5. Wish you had a design wall so I could get a better look at this project but maybe I'll just have to wait - it will be tricky though! Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday
