Here is my first diamond quilt. I found it too frustrating, but it turned out fine for me to keep.
I collect Christmas fabrics and wanted to put them together in a scrappy look.
This pattern was in the December 2006 American Patchwork and Quilting magazine as "diamond in the rough."
If you make one, or made one, post your pic here too!
backing - a fabric I really wanted to just hoard in my stash and never use!
