Q120 –Diamonds – Quilt and Wall Hanging

Good Day,

Andy and I would like to present our 120th quilt and wall hanging, Diamonds.

Diamonds was designed, pieced, and quilted by Jim Smith and Andy Brunhammer

The inspiration for our Diamonds is a combination and connection to our designs Light Bringer and Sea and Sky. It is creation using paper piecing and applique while focusing on the idea of a three-dimensional geometric perspective and design.

Diamonds is the third of a series of three quilts and wall hangings all inspired by the movement of the Hoffman Challenge fabric Indigo of the Anisa line. Including the two other quilts, also our original designs, Light Bringer and Sea and Sky, we attempt to relate a story of a moving creation. Apart from the Indigo fabric we incorporated the Aqua, Black, Mint, Blues, and Pink fabrics of the Anisa line into our design.

Our Diamonds measures: Width – 37” (97.2 cms) by Length/Height 39” (97.8 cms). All thread used in our quilting design is Sulky thread selected for the Hoffman Challenge. Our idea was to use parallel straight lines to compliment the nine boxes. In the kaleidoscopes/hexagons we’ve used descending, yet joined hexagons within each. Beginning at the central vanishing point we added a series of concentric circles and quilted a pebbling effect.

This is our venture into something new and is a part of our quilting learning experience.
