Tuxedo Diamonds Quilt Reveal
Ta da. My latest finish. I continued another row of echo quilting, which made the quilting pattern take on a rough diamond shape. I was going to call it diamond in the rough or mention the jagged teeth, but realized my rough diamonds were already wearing bow ties and therefore decided to call it Tuxedo Diamonds. You have to dress for the higher level you wish to achieve.
The label was supposed to repeat the block on the front. I was initially going to write my information on the light corners. I had run out of the white fabric so have a tan fabric. The center was too big to not use, so I decided to write the label on the red. I was afraid the red wouldn't show the letters, but going over it with the pen a couple of times is just fine.
Here it is on the wall to show the relative size. It is about 12 1/2" x 17 1/2". It shares fabric with the Optical Illusion and Snowbird.
