the Scrap Assassin quilt

How about one last quilt for today?  I knew you'd be interested. :-)

This is another scrap management quilt, similar to a God's Eye block.  My notes say that it's called "Scrap Assassin" but research shows that it is NOT any of the quilt patterns currently going by that name.

The hallmark of this block is that the center diagonal strip is always the same width, although the color varies from block to block.  Capping each end of that center diagonal is a black triangle.  The secondary pattern that emerges, when you sew the blocks together, is all those black triangles form a black diamond amidst the riot of color.

Because this top is *so* busy, I used a pantograph for the quilting.  It was very difficult to photograph the stitching on the quilt, so what you see is what you get. :-)

That picture is just a teaser! For all the gory details, links and more pictures, please visit my web page for the Scrap Assassin quilt.
