Wild diagonals

     I have made this pattern before, but this time I used a black jelly roll I got on sale a while ago and a batik strip jelly roll sitting around. It is Diagonal Variations that I found at
My mom sewed the long strips- two sets- black color black, and color black color and then into a tube (sewn on the sides of the sets). I cut them into triangles that open up into squares. They sat for a while because I trimmed the last squares 1/4" smaller than the rest of them and could not make the decision to either make the quilt smaller or trim all the other squares. Finally, I trimmed them all and laid it out. It looks a bit wild.
    For the next 4 days I will be at a quilt retreat and hope to get this sewn together as well as other tops. They feed us, we sew and sleep- what is not to like about that?

All the trims

Love this Linda - reminds me of a box of Licorice Allsorts which I used to find in my Christmas stocking every year!!

I like that quilt. I was just gifted with some Island Batiks, and, that would be a great way to use them (maybe with navy blue instead of black for this set of batiks).
