Colleen's Blue Boxed Diamonds Quilt

 This is Colleen's Blue quilt for the other nephew that I mentioned in the previous post but she used a totally different pattern. I can't say which I like better.  They're both great. 

In process. The top thread is Omni Teal and although that sounds like it would look very Green-ish, it's actually a really pretty shade of Blue which worked perfectly for this one.

I truly love how the stitching takes a pretty quilt top.....

.....and transforms it into something fabulous. Whether the stitching is simpler edge to edge designs or intense custom work, once a top is quilted, it really shines.  The panto is Calder.
You'll chuckle at this.....I know for a fact that I took outside final pictures of this quilt because I did it at the same time as I took the pics for the other Blue quilt...but for the life of me I can't find where I saved those pics on my desktop.  So I can't share with you the "glamour" shots.
Oh well, I'll find them eventually.  When Colleen picked up the 2 Blue quilts, she brought me 2 more tops to stitch so I'll be sharing those with you next.

Kudos to Colleen finishing 4 quilts and Michele getting them all quilted.
