BORDERED DIAMONDS QUILT - FABRIC PACK
All fabrics by Kaffe Fassett and Philip Jacobs for Rowan/Kaffe Fassett Collective Fabrics
USE THIS FABRIC PACK TO MAKE ONE VERY LARGE QUILT OR TWO SMALLER ONES.
You get 17 1/2 yards of fabric, which is plenty to make this quilt as large as you wish.
ADD MORE OF YOUR OWN COLORFUL FABRICS FOR EVEN MORE VARIETY IF YOU LIKE.
I ALSO OFFER A SMALLER KIT FOR BORDERED DIAMONDS - TYPE DIAMONDS IN THE SEARCH FIELD TO SEE BOTH SIZES
PLEASE NOTE - PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING:
All the fabrics in this kit are CURRENT Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics.
Many of the old and/or discontinued fabrics shown in the sample photo are substituted with newer, equally nice (often nicer) fabrics.
Due to the manufacturer frequently discontinuing some fabrics, the fabrics you receive in this kit differ from my own sample which was made a few years ago from my extensive stash built up over a decade. The overall look of the quilt will still be very similar strikingly beautiful. The charm with this pattern is that all you need is a good variety of colors and strong contrast in the borders.
I only choose current and popular fabrics for the fabric pack; fabrics I myself would like to use if I was making another Bordered Diamond quilt today.
=============================== * * * =================================
The original pattern is for a 57" x 80" quilt but it is very easy to make it any size you want.
To make this quilt bigger:
All you need to do is to make more diamonds and keep adding them to the quilt center until you have a quilt the size you want.
You need the book "Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts" by Kaffe Fassett (2010) available from Amazon, to make this quilt. I will include some tips and instructions which I have found to be very useful for my students when I teach this as a class.
The original Bordered Diamond quilt does not have a border. It's simply quilted and bound.
It's a very contemporary and modern look.
But if you wish, you can add a border. This quilt is yours to make the way you want it to look. Have lots of fun with it. :)
I only choose fabrics I would want to add to my own quilt if I was making it again now.
As with all fabric collections, some come and some go and I have to modify my kits, but they are all equally gorgeous fabrics and the results are always stunning.
Colors and contrasts are the key ingredients in the Diamond quilt.
