Barb pieced this is with beautiful fabrics. Such soft subtle colors. It's 46 x 46.
I used a grey thread that blended with all of the fabrics.
I quilted elongated swirls in the diamonds to accent the direction they flow
I like the way the swirls all come together in the center of the quilt
The 9-patches have have double connecting curves to soften those straight lines
I outlined the edges of the narrow border
The black border has feathers that curve around the corners from center to center.
The backing is this same black fabric
I used a gold metallic thread to outline the gold cord in the large print border
