Diamonds for Tina Sue ~ Blogger's Quilt Festival

My entry for ...
Amy's Creative Side
Diamonds for Tina Sue
I found a tutorial on The Modern Quilt Guild's blog to make the half rectangle triangle. By placing the dark side of the rectangles together the diamonds came to life.
I really enjoyed sewing the wonky letters together to make her name.
Here's the little sweetie pie!

The back!

It's beautiful, Julia! Great colour choices and I love that Tina Sue's name is pieced in. What a wonderful welcome gift! Tina Sue is adorable!

What a wonderful quilt, for a precious little girl. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Put side by side, our two quilts are amazing!

Julia this quilt turned out spectacular. I'm looking at it from way over here in Kuching!

So sweet! I love that this is big enough for her to grow into, so it'll be good to go for years. And -wow- Thanks for sharing the tutorial for the HRTs!

This is so sweet! I did a run of blue and yellow quilts, years ago, and they are still some of my most cheerful! I've never pieced words into one, though! This is great!

That quilt just dances between the diamonds and the zig zag. Tina sure is lucky.
