Fractured Diamond in Pink

My granddaughter, who is 4, suggested that I really needed to make a quilt using the pink floral in the above photo. She was adamant that I use as much pink as possible. Since I'm not a pink type of girl, I did manage to find one other scrap of what reads as a solid pink to use as a frame around the gray diamonds. She was pleased with the look so I'm off the hook......LOL

I made this one a couple of years ago using scraps from my black/white stash. I really love the way the red seems to pop out at you. and the small piano key border pulls everything together.

This was the first Fractured Diamond that I made about 4 years ago. I used earth-tones. It amazes me how different each one looks & yet they are the same.

It's so interesting to see different versions of the same pattern. How fun! Thank your granddaughter for the suggestion. :-)

They all look so appealing, but the one made with black and white strings and red is my favorite. I have a bag of black and white scraps I've been saving for something, so if you find that I've borrowed your idea, please think of it as sincerest flattery!
