This design is pretty similar to Cubing and Triangle Mosaic. All three are alike in being pretty time consuming to stitch, but the texture you get is worth it!
Inspiration - Yep, that good ole' pack of playing cards is still shuffling itself out with this design. Don't worry, we only have one more tomorrow with Ace of Spades.
Filler Design Type - Chaining. Try to chain the diamond shapes together so that it leaves a bit of the background showing through. This isn't like cubing where every square inch of the piece must be covered with squares.
Difficulty Level - Intermediate. Maintaining a consistent diamond shape can be tricky, but just take it slow and stay consistent and you'll do just fine!
Directional Texture - No Direction. This design is definitely a background design and will work great in small, detailed areas.
Suggestions for Use - Any takers on my poker inspired quilt? Yeah, I know the graph is pretty bad. Maybe I should try my hand at the new fangled Electric Quilt?
I've been hearing some pretty good things about this program, but I haven't taken the plunge to download the trial yet. Part of this is lack of time and part is because I'm running out of space on my computer very fast!
Feel free to leave comments about Electric Quilt if you use it and what you think of it!
