    Field of Diamonds lap quilt

    One of my UFOs is a large quilt in the Field of Diamonds pattern. A few days back, I saw an F&P show suggesting using their special ruler to cut half hexagons, which could be sewn together in strips with no Y seams. I don't worry about Y seams, but I decided to try the idea. I cut a template from old XRay film. This lap quilt was the result. I think I may do another oversized GFG variant this way. I enjoyed this one.

    This looks great. I was introduced to this 1/2 Hex by a friend on QB the other day and have plans to try one. Yours is beautiful.

    This is so pretty! The red fabric really adds the definition in this quilt.

    Very good job on this one. I don't do complicated patterns, I guess I am too lazy.
