As I made my Melon Ice table runner recently, I was reminded of how much I like the diamond shape. I wanted to explore it a little more in a minimalist design using large scale piecing. I drew several diamond designs and settled on this one. While it is a simple design, I contemplated the placement of the diamond quite a bit. The finished mini measures 20″ x 20″ and I used Art Gallery Pure Elements Solids.
I quilted using a 50 weight Aurifil thread, in a diagonal grid, with lines spaced just over a 1/4″ apart.
The texture is really amazing. It was worth the three solid hours of quilting.
It was a fun exercise for me and I think I will work on a few similar projects because I enjoyed it! I am naming this piece Curious after a comment made by a friend on IG.
