Diamond Diva

The new patterns have just arrived from the printer, so I get to give a little preview of what’s been happening around here lately.

I’ll show more than that, but I just wanted to sneak that photo in first!

In fact, I have so many photos that I decided to break up the preview into three separate posts.  That way I can show lots of photos, but the posts won’t get too long.  In addition, I can have three separate giveaways, giving more people a chance to win the new pattern.

The first pattern is called Diamond Diva.   (Yes, my love affair with 60-degree angles continues.  BTW – no special ruler is needed.)   The pattern began with the throw size quilt, but as usual, I couldn’t stop myself from coming up with other options!

For some reason, when I convert my PDF files of the cover to a JPG, the colors get off, so this next photo shows the color of the quilt better.  (The fabric line is Sanibel)

I chose to do a raw-edge applique technique for the brown diamonds.  Over time they will fuzz up to create a soft edge with lots of texture.  I haven’t used this quilt, so the edges aren’t that fuzzy yet, but over time they will be.  I just love the dimension that they add.  If you prefer not to have a loose raw edge,  just use a fusible product and a machine blanket stitch around the edges.

Of course, I had to make the new pattern in my Christmas line too.  Even though it’s called “At Home for the Holidays”, I left the Christmas prints out of this quilt, so it could stay out longer.

I possibly should put away my snow crystal vase though.  It is May after all.

I plan to turn the white and black print into a dust ruffle.  Someday . . .  . after market.

The pattern also comes with a runner option.  I think it looks like an argyle – when shown in the runner and with only two colors in the blocks.  I’ve always loved argyles. . . . 

 

The runner works well on my dining room table and it’s small enough that I don’t have to remove it during the meal.

I also tried it over the chair in the bedroom.  That works too, but I have to say that my favorite thing about this runner is that it takes just 4 Fat Quarters!  (that doesn’t include the backing and binding).   So often I see a fabric line that I love, but know I shouldn’t buy the whole line.   Now I will just buy 4 Fat Quarters and make this little runner (in under an hour, I might add). 

This pattern also has a little octagon topper included.  This one takes only 3 Fat Quarters - one for the center, one for the border, and one for sashing and binding.  I happen to like the center done up in two colors – as shown below.  It requires 6 Fat Quarters, but then you get two toppers out of the deal.  It’s really quick and easy, so you won’t mind making two!

I also made the topper in Christmas fabric . . . .

I’ve been trying it out around the house, and found a spot on my kitchen island.  It matches my Target dishes and chair cushions and it fits the space.  

I found that this little topper fits into lots of spots around my house.  It’s fairly small, so it fits into nooks and crannies that quilts can’t normally fit into.

 

Like next to my computer -

Or over the bench in my dining room . .

 

You get the idea, so I’ll stop now.  I mentioned a give-away at the beginning of the post, so if you would like a chance to win a pattern, just leave me a comment to be entered to win.  I’m always curious to see what you think!  I’ll show the other two patterns in the next couple of days, then announce the winners next week.

See ya back here soon!

    I love it! I’d love to see one sitting on my bedside table!

    • Jean says:

      Since I’m addicted to fat quarters I love the runners,etc. What lovely ideas of where I could use them or the gifts I could make for family so no one would be left out. As always beautiful fabric and some more fats coming in the door. Will my sewing room hold them all? Or do we have reinforce the walls and floor. Just need to sew more another reason, the things we have to do to save our homes from collapsing. ( Happy Face )

  2. kimland says:

    What a combination!!! Once again… I find that your fabric and patterns are beautiful and fresh!!! You nailed it, AGAIN!!!

  3. Kathy says:

    Heather, I love the little octagon topper! I can see making many of those for gifts this year. Thanks for the great patterns and fabrics.

  4. Connie F says:

    What beautiful patterns!
    I have always loved your quilts…well all of your items!

  5. Sherri says:

    I love this new pattern…in every version! I’m most excited about the octagon topper, especially since I’ll be able to make 2 at once with 6 fat quarters! I gave everyone table runners a couple of years ago…and this year I think it will be these octagon toppers!

  6. Denise says:

    Heather, I love your patterns…I have quite a collection of them! You have simple, clean designs and great directions. I’m looking forward to making the hexagon table topper.

  7. Debbie says:

    I think “lovely!” I especially like the big quilt (love those ‘true’ colors!) & the argyle runner! Love those black & white prints in with the red & green too! Very nice!

  8. Linda T says:

    Count me in – I love this pattern!

  9. Danielle says:

    I love the pattern, and the fabrics are awesome! The black and white print is my favorite!

  10. Amy says:

    I love the new pattern!!! Love the staging of the quilts in your home, too!!!

  11. Jan says:

    I am so in love with the argyle topper. The fact that it uses just 4 fat quarters is beyond awesome. The fact you can make it in an hour~hmmm, I’m thinking about 4 or so for me. I am very slow and you are Ms. Super fast sewer it seems. Of course I would adore it if I could though!! I am loving your new Christmas/anytime line. So many great things coming!

  12. Claudia says:

    Great job love the table toppers. I also love your new Christmas line. It all look so great together. Can’t wait to see the other new patterns.

  13. Rachael R. says:

    Diamond Diva is fabulous! I especially like the raw edges of the brown diamonds. Your Sanibel line of fabrics is perfect for this pattern. Love it!

  14. Melanie says:

    The pattern is terrific and I love your Christmas line, good thing I’m not on a stash diet lol!

  15. Amy C says:

    So cute! I like them all. I really think it is cool that you only need 3 fat quarters to make the little topper.

  16. Chris says:

    What a great pattern! I just finished a table runner using one of your patterns for charm squares (I’m too lazy to go look for the name of it!). Thanks for such wonderful, fun patterns.

    Chris

  17. Carmen (Country Mouse) says:

  21. Jessie says:

    I love your new pattern, all three versions! And those fabrics are awesome too!

  22. Linda P. says:

    Love the pattern and the name – I first thought the post was going to be about a surprise diamond you received – lol!! I love all the combos, but that tiny topper at the end goes every where, and boy I can see me whipping those up for Christmas!!
    On the big diamond one in the beginning, did you quilt it first, before adding the other diamonds – it looked as tho they were added later. I love all your patterns and books!

  23. Denniele says:

    Love the dimensional look with the triangles. You have been busy!

  24. mariajhmom says:

    You’re the Diamond Diva!!!!! The patterns and the fabric are both awesome. I must have the Christmas fabric when it comes out!

  25. Jenniffier says:

    I really like all those diamonds. When I saw it it made me smile. Thanks for the chance to win.

  26. Lynda says:

    Both the pattern and the fabric are fabulous!! Thanks for the opportunity to win a pattern. I’d love one!

  27. Quilting Chick says:

    I love this pattern and especially the small topper. It is beautiful and I can think of so many places I could use it. It would be so much fun to make it with all different fabrics for all different seasons..I enjoy your blog so much-thanks for sharing–Hugs, Marietta

  28. Dee says:

    I love your color choices and that you show the same quilt made in different fabrics. I have several of your books and plan to use them to make some table runners for my house. It’s on my list of things to do.

  29. Quilting Chick says:

    Need to add I love your fabric too!! Wonderful colors– :)

  30. Anita says:

  33. Shelley says:

    I just love this pattern and the different combinations!! The table topper would work so well on small side tables. Thank you for the sneak peek!!

  34. Janelle says:

    Your posts and your fabric always make me happy.

  35. sue says:

    I always love your patterns and fabric and I love these two. I would love a chance to win the pattern because I have tried working with diamonds and I just can’t do it! I tried to make a quilt of my own design with diamonds and I just laughed when I finished because they all slanted off and I couldn’t cut a straight line through them. Help!

  36. Karen says:

    Love the pattern with all the options!
    I LOVE the Christmas line!!! I want all of it!
    I would settle for winning the pattern (If you want to throw in some fat quarters of the Christmas line…that would just make my month!)

  37. Abby Latimer says:

    I love the Christmas line. Can’t wait to try the star topper with it!

  38. Debbie says:

    Those are such nice diamond patterns, Heather! I’m hooked on hexagons and especially like the elongated hexagon table topper. Thanks for counting me in.

  39. Giggles says:

    The raw edge diamonds are a great effect. I love it. What a great idea! I’ve never pieced with anything other than 90 degrees. I’m a little scared to try anything else.

  40. Kandy says:

    The patterns and new fabric line are all very interesting and bright. They bring movement and color into any space without overpowering their surroundings. Thanks for great inspiration!

  41. maureen says:

    I love the new Christmas line. The new diamond pattern is striking and I really like the small table runner!

  42. Julie says:

    I love the diamonds, they just seem to float against the background fabric. Your new Christmas fabric is just beautiful, love the black with the red & green. Was thrilled to see you had something posted today. I talk about your quilts all the time, love the new pattern too!

  43. Sandy says:

    Love the new Christmas line your combinations are so great! The new pattern is great too. Just finished making Fresh Linens from Let the Good Times Roll. Your patterns are the best.

  47. Barbara says:

    I love the new topper, I could definitely use this all over the house, and it would be great for gifts.

  48. Leslie Schmidt says:

    What a truly versatile pattern! I love how different the little octagon looks from the other two. Both fabric collections look great, but that Christmas one is a stunner!

  49. Laura Tawney says:

    I really love the octagon topper! I can see it in all different types of fabrics and it would make wonderful gifts for my sisters and daughter-in-law. Just the right size for a fun gift to make and I would love to be entered into your give-a-way!

    I have a couple of your pattern books, and I have to say that you are my favorite designer! And I love this pattern, too, although I’m not sure how accurately I could sew all the diamonds. I’d love to try though! Your home is immaculate…crisp, neat, clean, and richly decorated with quilted items. I love it.

  64. Gale says:

    That pattern is gorgeous! I love the octagon topper.

    Heather, I ADORE this pattern!!! Every project is just perfect! I especially like the use of just 3 or 4 fat quarters for the table runner & topper–like you said a great way to just get a few fqs of a line. I already know two new Moda lines that I would love to make the larger quilt from.
