Diamond Alley Quilt


This is Cindy’s quilt and it is called Diamond Alley by Sassafras Lane Designs.  She made this quilt for her daughter who is going to college in San Francisco. The diamond shape are oversized at 11” x20” and I love the mix of orange fabrics she chose.   We decided on Bountiful Feathers for the pantograph as it is a very large scale pattern and looked proportional on the large diamond shapes while adding soft curves.


Cindy asked for Dream Puff batting so the quilt will be warm and I used white So Fine thread on top and white Bottom Line on the back.  She made the backing with leftover orange fabrics from the front and some black and white prints.  They are 10” squares set on point and it really makes a beautiful back, I would consider this quilt reversible!



  1. Such a special quilt! Looks great with the feathers!

  2. Very creative backing. Pretty quilt, and I agree reversible.

  3. Beautiful quilt. Sometimes I forget how striking just a simple design can be.
