DONE!

OK, I have one more side to bind but it's DONE!!!!!


I know you've been looking at this since March 2011 and I know you've seen the 6-pointed stars and the tumbling blocks within the quilt design but I've also noticed that when viewed from this next angle that there is kind of a zig zaggy pattern visible along the center spine. Can you see it?



This next shot is very washed out (the color in the previous shot is more accurate) but shows the quilting detail on the back. The diamonds were stitched on the black sashing and the straight lines were over the colored diamonds. I love the various stars that are created by the diamonds or straight lines, as well as the diamonds and hexies.

Yes, I can see the zig-zaggy pattern.
And where did you come up with hexie fabric for the backing? : )
