DIAMONDS IN THE MIDDLE PATTERN

Christmas of 2007, my granddaughter wanted a new quilt and she drew out the design she wanted. We bought fabric and got it just about finished during their 2 week visit. Last March, when we were visiting them, I thought, why not make it up as a pattern and see if anyone else would enjoy it also? My DIL prepared the diagram on CAD (she is an architect) and I figured out the yardage and wrote up the instructions. It took a while, but now we have a finished product! I will be listing it on my etsy site: logcabinmercantile.etsy.com.

See her quilt below (and the blog I wrote about it here).
I made the one below for my GD's brother. It is more scrappy (and masculine).

There is a new blogger who is having a drawing here. Go visit her and join in on her first drawing!

CAD does make it easier to do the math in quilts. I use CAD also but in civil engineering.

The quilt is lovely. I'll bet there are a zillion different color combinations that could be done. Baby colors would be great!
