Another Diamonds Squared Quilt

I’m almost afraid to post the truth about this quilt. I’m afraid you will all get mad and yell at me, though it’s not my fault. But here goes.

Another Diamonds Squared

This quilt has spent decades living in the garage and the trunk of my parents’ car <dodges rotten tomatoes>. It’s a crazy thing to have so many handmade quilts lying around that they weren’t thought of as something special. The least among them was relegated to emergency use on car trips or for picnics or whatever.

It’s hand quilted in a little zig-zag pattern. And I thought you might like close-ups of the fabrics.

Just for comparison, here are the other quilts in this pattern that I’ve already shown you. I really need better pictures of some of these!

Someone clearly liked this pattern!

And would you believe that I found a photo from a Girl Scout camping trip that shows a quilt with this pattern in the tent, but that it’s clearly not any of these three, but YET ANOTHER ONE?? I haven’t been able to dig that one up, but surely it’s around here somewhere….

  • Such a beautiful quilt! I hate to hear how it was stored, but it sounds like it was put to good use. I keep a quilt in my trunk too for emergency use. Now I feel like I should take better care of it.
