Strip Diamonds Quilt!

Share

Barbara Wiggins made this adorable quilt from strips. Square up your blocks cutting at a 45 degree angle to your strips then sew them to the next block with the strips meeting at right angles. This technique makes a spectacularly interesting and colorful quilt! It’s filled with our wonderful Hobbs Heirloom batting and backed with Turquoise Tonal Vineyard 108” Quilt Backing which we stock. I quilted it for her in “Double Bubbles” with Bahama Blue thread and made the binding to match the back. A fun way to make a great quilt!

Bring your sewing machine and cutter. You do need to register in advance which you can do in person at Lady Bird Quilts & Fabric on Saturday, by giving us a call at 850-329-8276 or sending us a message (click on contact above). Fabric will be for sale after the class.

If you’ve never been to our friendly Quilt & Fabric shop before, we are located at 2029 Bristol Highway, Quincy, FL. From I-10 take the Greensboro exit (174) and go south 3 miles on State Rd 12 to the center of Greensboro where you will turn left at the traffic light continuing south on State Road 12 for 2 miles. We are located on the left. Look for a fence with a row of American Flags on your left (if you are going south). We are the first driveway on the left past the flags. Just look for the building with the “Fabric & Quilts” sign. See you there! 🙂Card Trick Quilt Block
