Nicki Johnson in Alabama has finished her spectacular Quilted Diamonds top!
It takes my breath away!
The diamonds are hand pieced and fussy cut!
Aren’t these fabulous? The bee’s knees!
(i.e. Sweet and good, because the knees of the bee are where all the sweet, good stuff is collected.)
Each little diamond is a work of art.
Every diamond is different but they look fabulous together.
I love all of them. . .
. . . but I think this is Monkey’s favorite.
Congratulations, Nicki! You are an inspiration. You make me want to sew more diamonds myself.
Nicki used the setting in Quilted Diamonds (first book).
It is even more impressive because she did it without being able to print the sashing and cornerstones with Inklingo. (New Shape Collection this year.)
If you are just learning the pleasures of hand piecing (with or without Inklingo), the two-hour QD2 lesson makes it easy to get started. (FAQ about Quilted Diamonds)
FACEBOOK VS THE BLOG—ARE YOU SUBSCRIBED?
If you are on Facebook, you may have already seen some of Nicki’s Quilted Diamonds.
I post a photo or two on Facebook almost every day. It is usually about quilting, but sometimes it is something happening at Inklingo Headquarters.
I love to share photos of your Inklingo and Quilted Diamonds blocks too!
We try to stop and smell the flowers every day.
You do NOT have to have a Facebook account to see what I post there if you go directly to https://www.facebook.com/inklingo
However, Facebook only shows my photos to about 20% of the quilters who have “liked” the Inklingo Facebook Page, so the best way to stay up to date is to subscribe to the blog (top of the right sidebar).
If you are on Facebook, please post photos of your Inklingo and QD blocks on my page and please “like” and “comment” and “share” my photos. When we interact, it makes it more likely that Facebook will show you my next photos too.
I hope you enjoy seeing Nicki’s sparkling diamonds as much as I do!
Thank you, Nicki! I can hardly wait to see what you do next.
Linda & Monkey
