This PDF quilt pattern is called Baguette.
This foundation pieced quilt pattern was inspired by gem stones and their cuts and the way light can reflect off of a clear diamond and create bursts of color. I chose the colors for my gemstones based on the colors I tend to see reflected in my engagement ring; pastel hues and grey. There is a trend in modern quilting fabrics to include touches of metallic. It seems appropriate to include bits of them in a quilt like this since diamond settings provide a touch of gold. Included in this quilt are metallic fabrics from Brambleberry Ridge by Violet Craft for Michael Miller and Shimmer by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman. This pattern allows for so many design possibilities. It could look fantastic done in bold hues found in emeralds, sapphires and rubies. It lends itself to solids, prints, collections or scrappy equally well.
