Man Quilt Beginnings

Feeling a need to share a little more quilt love with my boys, I’ve started another man quilt. Although they say diamonds are a girls best friend, I think they make for a pretty masculine quilt. It took me a few tries to get these just right. Making sure I had proper seem allowance on all sides with out chopping off points. Not that I’m a real perfectionist when it comes to this. But there are times when I put forth the effort. This quilt just happened to be one of those times.

 Once I got that figured out I changed a bunch of these diamonds.

 Next I chained some smaller ones.

 Finally I added a set of larger ones. I do like to play with different sizes of the same or similar shapes in a quilt. Call me strange but I find it interesting to see how they all play together.

I have several more rows to finish and a little play with alternate rows. But for an beginning I think this man quilt has potential.
