I am squeaking in with my finished Postage Stamp (setting) Throw (size) version of the Diatom quilt that I made during the Diatom quilt along today. Today is the final day that blocks, pieced quilt tops, or finished quilts can be added to the Diatom Final Linkup. Thank goodness I got it done just in time!
My husband and I went camping over the weekend, and we got a few photographs of the Diatom Postage Stamp Throw quilt at Plaskett Creek Campground. The nights were chilly, and we used it and 3 other quilts on our bed to stay warm and cozy at night!
I backed and bound the quilt using the same fabric I used for the background (Moda Bella American Blue*). The quilting was an all over stipple or meander using 50wt Aurifil 2210 (Caramel). You can read more about my thread auditioning in my Diatom Quilting blog post.
Ideally, I would already have the quilt washed and dried so I could tell you how large it finished after the first wash, but I have a lot of technical editing work to dive into this week and a camping trip to to unpack from. Also: how is this already the last day of July?!?! Have a great week, everyone.
UPDATED 7/31/23 at 4:20 PM Pacific: I’m working through my to-do list! I got the quilt washed and it measures 52″ wide by 68″ tall after the first wash. Now, back to technical editing!
