Sew and Tell Friday – Zazzle, Turning Twenty Diamonds

I am excited to share some more Sew and Tell with you today.

Joanne P. is following along with my Do-it-Yourself-Quilt tutorial. But, instead of using a jelly roll, Joanne cut up her strips from Mark Lipinski’s Zazzle line in blue. She mixed in some brown and gold Moda scraps from her stash to add a little sparkle. How beautiful! I love how the white inner border provides a contrasting frame to the quilt. Notice how she used a piano keys border variation. Love it! Now I can’t wait to see it quilted!

Anne Y. recently finished a Turning Twenty into Diamonds quilt using Arnold’s Attic from Moda. (How did I miss that quilt pattern? I better put it on my list to add!) I love all of the texture that her quilting gives to the piece. She quilted straight lines in a diagonal setting. Don’t you think the quilting makes the quilt?

In the next couple of weeks I will be improving my blog so that we can have more sew and tell fun. Instead of waiting for everyone to send me their show and tell pics, we’ll have some link-up parties where you can post your own quilt-along pics, finished quilts, and wip’s (works-in progress). So stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, you can still email me pictures of your finished projects, using one or more fabrics that you got from me. Plus, I can’t wait to see more finished quilts from all of you who are finishing up your own Jolly Jelly Roll quilts. Happy Quilting!
