Diagonal Quilt and Pattern.


Today I would like to share my newest Diagonal Quilt.  I created this using my newest pattern. This is my 3rd Diagonal Quilt.  If you go to Crafty and put a comment on the pattern and come back here and leave a comment I will send you a copy of the pattern for free. Please make sure your email is available so that I can send you the pattern.  I have recently had 2 people comment but they are no-reply bloggers so I can not send the pattern.


My first Diagonal Quilt was made using a neat ombre material (yes I had to look up that name it even stumped me) Above is the back of my newest quilt.  At the time I made the back I had recently read a comment from one of my blog posts that talked about a log cabin block made similar to the style I used in my quilt (sewing into long rows my material and then re-cut it).  So the block in the back is just that.


For the pictures in this post I decided to take the quilts to the park.  I took the easy job of watching Julia play, while I stiffed Tanya with the picture taking.  She had a fun time first starting with taking pictures on the grass and then on a rock and then on a bench.  The above was done over a pull up bar.


Out of all the rock pictures I like this one of the back of my quilt the best.  I almost think I should make a pattern for the back of the quilt and sell it as the front of the quilt.  I put my square in the middle with diagonal lines going across above and below it.


Above is the first picture I made after the quilt was washed.  It is the only full up and down shot which I think is needed of any quilt, but it is not my favorite shot of the quilt.


I do think that I like this picture of the quilt on the grass.  It is not the best color wise but it is a fun picture of the quilt all the same.  If you visit my quilt pattern on Craftsy and put a comment on it (or on one of the quilts attached to it) I will email you a copy of the pattern for free.  Make sure to put a comment here so I get a email to reply too with the pattern.

Very nice - I left a comment on the quilt on craftsy. I like the diagonal stripes combined with ombre fabrics, nice combination.

Hi Richard and Tanya, I left a comment on Craftsy about the timeliness of this pattern.

Working with strips, as I do, I have a number already cut and this pattern will allow me to use them.

Love your diagonal quilts and left a comment on Craftsy. Thanks

What a neat idea to have the strips on the diagonal as opposed to in straight rows! Love the quilt.

If you already made 4 quilts using this pattern, it must go together really quickly.

I like this one, too. The back would be a good pattern. =) I left a comment on Craftsy, of course. This is such a useful pattern for all kinds of strips. I really liked the ombre one a lot, too.

I am thinking of trying this one just as it is and trying it using different sizes of stripes. Love it.

Left a comment on Craftsy and will restate it here, your combination of the front stripes and the pieced back for me is my kind of modern quilt.

I love the pattern and fabric choices. I left a comment on crafty. I can't wait to try making my own. Lovely quilt!

This pattern looks perfect for using up my collection of strips from various projects. I hope it looks just as nice as a scrappy quilt. The backing has a very modern look...love it. I also put a comment on Craftsy.

I do like the simplicity of this pattern, as well as the color combo that you used. I would love to make this for a charity quilt...or maybe for one of my three 2-yr old grandchildren as they move into big boy/big girl beds.
