|the first version|
While I bought the pattern from the designer, at a quilt show, a number of retail places offer it. Just do a Google search for "Ten-Minute Tile pattern" and you'll come up with a number of hits to choose from.
Well, since that time, the additional fabric has been sitting ... ageing, so to speak ... until now. Now it was time to get it stitched up. :-)
The title of the pattern doesn't lie; it really does only take 10 minutes to sew one block together. But you need a lot of blocks to make the quilt. :-)
This kind of gradient is required for this specific arrangement. If you use other gradient/ombre fabrics, you'll get a slightly different look.
"11th Anniversary Set" for the center diamonds and a design from SewForum (no longer available) for the half-diamonds. All the embroideries stitched out just beautifully and I'm very pleased with them.
Here are 4 of the 11 different designs I used.
For these embroideries, I used Glide thread (the same that I use for longarm quilting) and the stitch-outs were beautiful. I'm very pleased with them.
This finished top goes onto pile of Tops to be Quilted, which is an entirely different project. :-) For now, I'm very, very happy to have completed a UFO crossed off my list and made room in that UFO bin.
