I finished quilting and binding a simple diamond lap quilt. This pieced up quickly in diagonal rows. It was my first new project in several months, and I needed some instant gratification. I pieced it in about a week, which is about as instant as quilting gets. This kind of quilt is all about the colors and the fabric. Some rows contrast and other rows blend into each other. You can see the pieced backing of vertical stripes.
I quilted it in rows of spirals and squiggles and finished the binding while we were at the beach. I'm happy with the way this one turned out.
