Paper Pieced Diamonds

I had a lot of fun with this little quilt!  I wanted to do something paper pieced that was fairly modern.  Of course I dug into my batik stash and found the perfect fabrics to create it!  I found two orange and purple fabrics and then accented with a yellow tone-on-tone batik and an orange solid.

Here's the quilting I did on the back.

And on the front!  I stitched in the ditch around all the shapes.  I'd forgotten what a pain that can be!  I also decided to stitch the center diamonds around the edge in the dark purple thread.  It adds a little extra separation between the center diamonds and the yellow.  I like it, but boy did I have to be careful to stitch in exactly the right place!

More next time on the challenge of choosing binding for this quilt!

I hope you get to quilt today!  I boys are all away at scout camp for the day.  It's time for mama to enjoy the quiet and quilt!
