    just lovely. Are the charms 2 1/2" squares laid out on point, or were they each cut as diamonds?

    The black sashing really sets this one apart. Love the scrappy look.
    In my dream world, fabric is free and sewing makes you thin.

    As the name implies, i used jelly rolls. See 4 strips together, random colors. Stagger the ends (like steps) so you don't wafts fabric. Then cut on a 60 degree angle. Join 4 sets of these cuts to make a diamond. The setting is very similar to what you would use for a lone star, just smaller.
    Hope this helps!

    Beautiful quilt! I love how vibrant it is, especially now that it's dreary out! (at least where I live)
