First quilt pattern post: Floating Diamonds Quilt

This quilt is a fat quarter friendly (though other fabrics are needed) project. And it also incorporates the dog-ears from the diamond squares to make the zig-zag border! I made it a while ago and wrote up the pattern at the same time. Once the quilt was finished, I spent even more time perfecting the diagrams in the pattern.
The best part of this quilt is when you have all your squares made and get to arrange them so that the colors are evenly dispersed and the same pattern never touches. Sometimes it can be frustrating to do that, but this pattern use 14 different fat quarters so you have a variety of prints to work with.

I quilted an all-over pattern of red flowers, leaves, and loops on the blocks, while the borders each have their own unique quilting design.

The zig-zag border came together faster than I thought it would. It took me 3 different hour long sessions to make and attach them.
Hope you like the pattern and let me know if you have any questions about it!
