Diamond Traditions

Hello and Happy Monday!  Last week I received an advance copy of my book, Diamond Traditions with C&T Publishing.  It is due to come out in May.  The cover is SO cool and I am just thrilled with this book!  It is another fat quarter book and with this one, I use fat quarters as backgrounds for some quilts and 1 fabric for background for others.  There are 11 different quilts and most have multiple sizes.  Here is the cover:
The quilt on the front, Blue Heart Diamonds, was pieced by my friend, Peggy Drake and quilted by another friend Danette Gonzalez.  Here is a picture of the entire quilt:
This is one of the quilts in the book that uses a scrappy fat quarter background.  In the book, I also provide instructions on using either my rulers or the traditional method of piecing. 

Are you wondering where the name of the book came from?  Well, when I was designing the quilts, I saw a diamond theme coming out in each of the quilts, so there you go!

I will keep posting pictures of each of the quilts in the book in the next couple of weeks. 

Have a great week!

Congratulations! I really do look forward to seeing quilts from this book (and maybe buying a copy for myself)! It does look like a great book.
