I just noticed that I haven't blogged the quilt my sister in-law had me make this summer.
She was building a new house, and needing a quilt to hang on the wall. She was a quilter long before I started, and hand quilted many of her beautiful tops. But she decided there was no way she would have time to make another one, and asked if I could do it.
I've posted some of the process photos - this is the Fig Tree pattern she had chosen, along with the pretty Riley Blake fabrics.
And talk about a process!
Large piles of trimmings were generated in the making.
I wanted each diamond to be perfectly square - both vertical and horizontal.
The process involved a couple of rulers and lots of trimming, but I didn't mind. I love lining up points and trimming things just-so.
Then those nice diamonds were fun to join together.
After talking it over with my sister in-law, I decided to stipple the outer border and into the setting triangles. Then echoed both edges of the inner and outer diamonds.
This gave me about a million ends to weave in, but the final look was awesome.
I could look at those points all day :)
I'm still thrilled at how well my new Horizon kept everything lined up.
The whole quilt.
Got to see it hanging in the wild when we visited her at Thanksgiving, that was cool.
I just love it, the colors, the quilting. You out did yourself.
Absolutely gorgeous and that fabric is perfect for the pattern! I wish Fig Tree provided PDF patterns to save on shipping. Perhaps I'll try to wing this on my own.
Again, your quilt is stunning!

Wow! Impressive. Love the colors.
Perfect in every angle, line and point! Wow! I love the design process photos you shared too!
Simply gorgeous, Angela!
I love the seeing the process. And even the details of the quilting. You are a lot braver than me,attempting shapes other than squares.
wow, Angela, it's perfect!!! I, too could look at your perfectly matching points for a very, very long time. You did an amazing job!!!!
That is beautiful! Nice job. The colors are perfect and your workmanship as usual is fantastic.
A stunning creation. And I love that exactness provides its reward! Skipping steps just leads to frustration and ripping. You provide the most excellent example of doing it right and the eye candy dividend! Fab, fab, fab.
And I adore Fig Tree patterns & their results.
Beautifully pieced! A very pretty quilt and one they will cherish for years to come!
Oh, that came out just beautiful. Such a nice choice of fabrics picked from that border fabric, I'm guessing.
You certainly did a wonderful job and she is blessed to have you as a sister.
Stunning. It's just stunning.
That is a beautiful (beautiful!) quilt!!
Wow, this is really gorgeous!!!
It's gorgeous, truly! And wow - so precise with matching the points… That elevates the quilt to absolute-stunner level!
Good heavens!! What a massive accomplishment!! This is beautiful and well worth all of the work. Congratulations :).
This is stunning. I love the colours!
I also have this quilt pattern, but don't think my skills will be a match for it!! You did a beautiful job!
