"This quilt is the result of my continued exploration of the diamond shape. I wanted to create a quilt with a minimalist design and a refined color palette. I designed my own paper pieced block and repeated it. The result is an unexpected mild optical illusion where the blocks look slanted. I limited myself to two colors but the background has a few shades of color for added interest and depth. The quilt is densely quilted with a grid spaced 1/2"" apart. The diamonds appear to be ties so I called the quilt Haberdashery defined in the US as a shop selling men's accessories such as ties." West Newbury, Massachusetts, United States 49" x 56"
