New Quilts from Diane

I have had these three gorgeous quilts in my procession now for way too long! I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get them listed!

The first one I’m going to talk about is Porcupine Pineapple.

My mother-in-law, Diane, is responsible for this gorgeous quilt. This quilt016 is about as scrappy as you can get. It is made from beautiful country colored fabrics. A person could spend hours looking at it and have trouble finding two pieces that are the same. The amount of love and energy that went into this quilt is unfathomable.

Once Diane was finished piecing the top, she sent it to her sister, Barb ( to do the machine quilting. The quilting that Barb put on this quilt really accents the design. She did a marquis shape that starts small and gets bigger and projects from the center of each ‘pineapple’. Then Barb quilted a separate design in the border to really frame the inner beauty of the quilt.

The back of the quilt is pieced with a variety of burgundy printed cotton fabric. I feel it really adds the homey, cozy feel of this quilt.

Quilt Measures Approximately: 82” x 95” Fit a Queen Size bed and would be a coverlet on a King.


The next quilt I’m going to talk about is Diane’s Montana Star. She put this quilt together for the 2007 Quilts By Barb Quilt Retreat to help demonstrate the ‘square in a square’ technique. Other than the black border, this quilt is made entirely with fabric that Diane hand-dyed herself. The colors are so rich and beautiful.

Once the quilt top was completed, Diane sent it to her sister, Barb ( to quilt using her long-arm machine. It really added that perfect final touch to the quilt.

The back is pieced with a gorgeous floral cotton fabric that matches the front of the quilt.

Approximate Size: 93” x 107”. It will fit a King Size Bed and Drape over a Queen nicely.


The last quilt I’m going to be listing and talking about today is Summer Beauty Log Cabin Quilt. (I’m open to suggestions on the name!). This quilt is almost hard to describe because it is just so beautiful.

Diane put this stunning quilt together for the 2008 Quilts by Barb Quilt Retreat to help demonstrate the log cabin project. It is made entirely of fabric that she hand-dyed herself.

Once the top was painstakingly pieced together she sent it to her sister, Barb ( to quilt on her long-arm machine. Barb did an amazing job with the quilting. Each different area of color is quilted with a different pattern. It is truly stunning.

A beautiful pink floral fabric makes up the back of this quilt.

Approximate Size: 96” x 96”. Will fit a a Queen or a King.
