I love how simple shapes, make really interesting patterns, and the diamond is definitely one of these shapes… I don’t think I’ve ever made a ‘tumbling block’ quilt before, so this was a perfect opportunity to give it a go. I also had the perfect Diamond ruler which came free with a recent copy of Quilt Now Magazine

All the fabrics used in this quilt are from Stoffabrics, the ‘teddy’ fabric is super soft and cosy, a perfect fabric for a new born quilt.

Who loves a ‘Y’ seam? cause this pattern is bursting with them

I really enjoyed quilted one side of each of the illusion boxes

Every memory quilt and personalised gift set is made with love and care, offering the highest quality products all safety tested for your peace of mind. I love to make special memory quilts, using your child’s baby grows, bibs and small t-shirts, to make a lovely keepsake for years to come, with special appliqued motifs from their clothes, hand finished with cotton binding and all beautifully wrapped to the highest standard. The newborn gift sets are bespoke, simply chose the items you wish to add to your box. They are beautiful gifts made using super soft velour with a choice of pretty jersey fabrics. All the fabrics I use are Oeko-tex Standard 100. (STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. My Birch wood Bird ring is EN71 tested, meaning they have been chemically and physically tested and are confirmed suitable and safe to be used as a toy. www.instagram.com/michelle_creativeblonde and www.facebook.com/creativeblonde66

  1. Until today I never realized that the tumbling blocks were composed of diamonds. Your baby quilt is wonderful and looks so cuddly. Great job.

  2. I don’t mind that type of Y seam, as I did a ton of them once in a quilt for my daughter and got the hang of them then. They are rewarding when you open them up and they sit flat, aren’t they. 🙂 You did a great job on your diamond quilt and it will make a very nice gift for a new baby.
