I'm slowly collecting the fabrics to make Kaffe Fassett's Bordered Diamonds quilt but in the meantime, I thought I would make up a sample with some sale fabric that I'd bought just to make sure I understood what I was doing before I ploughed into the full size thing. Each diamond shape has it's own contrasting border
.. and they get stitched together in strips across the diagonal once the border goes on. I decided to add my own stitching detail across the diamonds for added interest.
It's ended up as an unexpected present for my parents as it looks really good on their dining room table!
