Fractured Diamond

After practicing free motion quilting, I felt like I was ready to try a small quilt. The smallest quilt I had was my Fractured Diamond measuring 26" x 27 1/2". It took me an hour to do each half. I don't like the black thread on my diamonds but I didn't know what other color to choose. My quilting isn't perfect but I am pleased with the outcome.

I know this fabric doesn't match but it was old fashioned looking to me and I liked it.
I had to see how it would look on my table and you know, it might just become a wall hanging.

Happy quilting!!
