Crimson Diamonds - Finally Finished

I've never done bindings as fast and I've done them this past week. Here is the totally completed quilt.
It measures 48" x 50". Saturday morning, right before I took them to the silent auction event location, was perfect for taking the pictures. I do love the way the red pops but still blends well with the other fabrics in this quilt. The charms were Moda's Love Letters.

My quilter chose a Rust colored thread for the front and it looks perfect. We did audition a number of other Red threads and they just weren't right.
The pattern she used is the open swirly flower and it suits the design so well.
For the backing I used Bella Bliss Tiny Flowers Cream by Andover.
This was a perfect smaller project to make for the school's silent auction fundraiser. During the evening I got a lot of compliments on it and I was proud that it was well received.
I do like this pattern a lot and will definitely use it again in the future.

Great quilt - the scrolling flower motif is perfect not only for the front, but also the back - lovely.

Gorgeous! I think I just found the pattern that I need to use to make a quilt for our bed. I'd also love to know if you bought the pattern or created your own. Thanks for sharing!
