Diamond Chain Quilt-Along

I've received such a great response from my mini quilt that I sent off for the Fab Little Quilt Swap that I decided to make up a tutorial and quilt along for anyone who is interested.

Instead of having to wait for a full tutorial that will take me several weeks to get finished, I figured it might be more fun if we do this together! So starting next week I'll be posting up a few steps at a time once a week.

The blocks are 20 inches, so if you just want a mini or a pillow you only have to make one! The entire quilt only requires 12 blocks -- I love big blocks! Plus there's a lot of options for different fabric placements. I like how changing up the fabric slightly can highlight circles within the diamonds, or changing up the background fabrics can make it glitter a little more :)

I'll be listing a blank coloring sheet and fabric requirements in a few days so that you have time to get some fabric if you want to play along.

  1. Great idea! I'm going to try to quilt along :)

  2. I would like to make this as a mini and paint it as a barn quilt too. Is that OK with you? Thanks
