Diamond Fields - almost King size


Blocks pieced and centered in some nested borders.  

Knowing it is still quite small for a king size, measuring only 75" x 75" right now, I tried it out on our king size bed.  It just covers the top, so my idea is finishing it off with a 10" border of the perfect purple fabric.  BUT, since I don't have that perfect purple fabric, this is as far as it will go today.  I will take a trip up to the quilt shop on Monday;  I haven't been up to see Deb in awhile.  Besides...I need to show off the "Bear Paw" quilt to her since all the fabrics came from her shop.  (Speaking of Bear Paw.......see it hiding under the Diamond Fields flimsy?  :D  Like I said....just keeping it safe and clean until it can be delivered to my parent's this week.)

I know I didn't really work with any purple scraps today, but this WHOLE quilt started with purple scraps, so.... it was a great way to spend the last day of June's Purple Rainbow Scrap challenge :)


Hmmm....so now what.....????

The Bear Paw quilt is very eye-catching.

Very pretty. A purple border will finish it off nicely.

Very pretty - I really like the way you did your borders - the way it makes the chain go all the way to the edge. Quite clever of you!

What a wonderful wedding gift, and how lucky that you didn't have to start from scratch. I love the borders you've done.

Great to use some purple. It is hard to make a quilt bigger. I think we are getting a king bed and need to think about a larger quilt too.
