I pinned the Diamonds in the Deep quilt pattern by Bonjour Quilts a few years ago but I somehow only bought the pattern recently. And then a few weeks ago I finally started cutting the fabric to make it. I hesitated on the colours to use for a while but ended-up settling on Kona White and Kona Coal both of which I had plenty of in my stash.
I wanted to do something a little bit different for the centre squares and used a fat quarter of some sparkly fabric.
For the backing, I used an old sheet my hubby found packed away in our basement. It was almost like new and super soft.
The binding is some Kona Emerald I had leftover from making the Oh Happy Day quilt a little while ago.
