Aqua Terra Diamonds

If your initials are T.S. or Y.B. please don't read this post. That is, if you are related to me and have those initials.


Okay, now that we have that out of the way I can go on to Sew and Tell my recent finish.


Remember the little peek?


It's now a complete quilt all ready for my brother and his fiance. They are getting married on April 23, DV.



The fabric is from Connecting Threads and is called Aqua Terra.It measures about 65 x 75 inches.I found the pattern here, but I didn't really follow the directions as it would have wasted alot of fabric.
I had my doubts while making it that it would turn out okay, but now that it is finished I love it! The back is a chocolate brown flannel. It is soft and snuggly, just perfect for keeping them warm on the couch.

  6. That looks GREAT!! A quilt for a wedding gift, IMO, is about the best gift you could ever give! But I am a little biased!
