    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.

    This is fabulous! I saw that F & P show, too, & was quite intrigued with the technique. I'd rather have teeth pulled than do Y seams, so I may have to try this. Especially if my quilt could look anything like your beauty!

    Burchquilts, I don't see any reason why yours should not look as good. Actually, the reason I did this as a half hex is because I thought I would take it to my guild and suggest it as a spring retreat project. Many members of the guild are afraid of branching out. I have a plan for another that is a half hex star.

    Of course, it really helps if you use dramatic fabrics. I love batiks for that reason.
