    here is the quilt I made for my father-- the colors are bright, I know, but I liked working with them. I finished it last year, just got home last month and thought to take photos of it.

    I had seen a photo of this quilt years ago, and couldn't find any directions, so I drafted the pattern myself. Lots of trial and error to make those green diamonds.
