Here is the second quilt for Sterile Eye. It goes to his youngest daughter. It is crazy quilt pieces cut into diamonds and then sewn together with sashes and smaller diamonds. It is machine pieced and quilted. It is 38.5 in X 52 in.
Here are a couple of detail photos to show some of the fabric interest. I hope the little girl will enjoy finding things in her quilt. In this photo you can find a car, skiers, carolers, birds, and more.
Her is a photo (which doesn’t do it justice) of the back which is a coral pink fabric. I hope you can see some of the quilting detail. Each large diamond was quilted in a cross-hatch manner that broke it (the diamond) into sixteen smaller diamonds. The two border strips were quilted using a simple cable.
