|3-D Diamonds by Jenifer Dick|
I made a paper-piecing template for the diamonds to keep it simple. I normally don't paper piece, but it would have been more difficult to cut the diamonds with a ruler and rotary cutter since the angles aren't standard quilters angles! It also is fabulously quilted by the ever-talented Tia Curtis, who also has a quilt in the book.
I had such a good time with this challenge! And probably the best thing about it was it introduced me to the world of op art. There are so many images that can be translated into fabric. I see a series of mid-century inspired quilts in my future!
I invited my friend, Trisch Price, author of Accentuate the Negative, to review the book! Head to her blog and see what she thinks of the book and to enter her contest too!
Tomorrow is the last day of the tour. These three great bloggers will be reviewing the book and giving away more great stuff. Don't forget to check them out!
