It's Week 3 of my Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book Tour and today I am sharing a second version of the Diamond Dash quilt! It's always fun to see how different a quilt can look by changing things up the fabrics.
For this version of Diamond Dash, I decided on a monochromatic theme. My goal with this version was to show how fun it can be to choose one color in all it's hues along with white, and make a stunning statement quilt. And I even used a Chambray in Denim
for the background. I love all of the added texture it gives to the quilt, and it really makes it feel like a great picnic quilt as it has a little more weight to it ;)
This version of Diamond Dash was made using Nantucket Summer fabrics
by Camille for Moda Fabrics
. All the quilts in Fast and Fun Lap Quilts are made with 1 Layer Cake/10" Stacker
and a background fabric. Nantucket Summer was the perfect print for an monochromatic look as it has so many different shades of blue.. I just love how it turned out! And of course, the scrappy binding is the perfect finish. The quilt finishes at 64 1/2" x 64 1/2".
Since I custom quilted all the quilts in the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts I thought it would be fun to do all over designs for these second versions. For this Diamond Dash quilt, I quilted all over loose feathers. This design is perfect for this quilt as it really plays nice in the negative space. And the funny thing is, I quilted this the day after getting back from the quilting cruise, and let me tell you, when your body still feels like it is on a ship and you try to long arm, you are rocking and rolling all over the place :)
And that is another Diamond Dash quilt, the third lap quilt in my new Fast & Fun Lap Quilts book
