Lozenge Quilt

I have thought about the lozenge shape for awhile. The most recent instance of writing about it that I could find was last year when I wrote about seeing the shape crop up everywhere. I thought I had put it on my dream projects or future projects list, but I don’t see it there.

Anyway, I took the Mostly Manor Layer Cake that I bought with Julie and one of the Northcott white charm packs and got to work sewing the charm squares on to the Layer cake squares.

The work is easy and this is a leaders and enders project, but it is coming out ok. I hope I notice when it is finished.

I decided to split the lozenges in half on the diagonal and sew them back together with other fabric halves. I think it will be more interesting.

I am not a huge fan of the fabric. I think I mostly liked the large roses prints. Still, it should be a fun experiment. I’ll have to figure out what to do with it as I don’t need it laying around. I have a possible idea, but we will have to see.

  1. I just finished quilting one of these for a client. I used a maze stitch pattern all over. It’s a fun design that I would consider using for charm packs.. I didn’t think of doing it with the larger layer cakes but I might now. I love your idea of splitting them and reassembling, for a two toned lozenge effect.. Can’t wait to see that!

    1. I saw the split lozenge quilt at PIQF in October (I don’t think I wrote about the show – don’t remember). The layer cake squares are quite large and while they look nice, I thought splitting them might be a better design choice. We’ll see. I already started, so it is too late to change my mind.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.
