No Diamonds In the Sky - Calico Carriage Quilt Designs

I have finished my No Diamonds In the Sky quilt.  Pattern by Calico Carriage Quilt Designs.  I just love how it resembles an old fashioned broken star quilt.  It makes a large 92" x 92".

I quilted a feather design in the background and crosshatching in the borders.  I didn't want to quilt over the star, so I stitched the diamond shape in the ditch.  

I used a piece of 108" Civil War for the backing.

Thanks for letting me share.

Migration - Red and Black

 We have several shop samples hanging at the shop.  As many may know I am a big fan of the Calico Carriage Quilt Designs Patterns.  I have made the Migration in the Past in earth tones.

But I found this wonderful Black with Red Roses and it just felt like a Migration fabric.  Here is an overall photo of the quilt.

Close up of the center.  I just love this pattern.  It is one that many people look at and think that it will be difficult, but with the directions it is very simple and everything fits together.

I chose a red and tan plaid backing for the shop sample.  And quilted in a whirlwind pattern.
