And speaking of Diamonds...the piece they are examining contains 24 diamond shaped blocks. This is "Farrago": an assortment or a medley; a conglomeration; a confused mixture. Well named, don't you think? It is pieced from a fabric line designed by Mark Lipinski named Krakow. Dayle's ordered it in especially for the Festival and my quilt was designed to showcase the dramatic red and black prints.
The pattern is available for $12.95 ; something new this time are packages of pre-printed tear-away paper foundations at a cost of $8.00 for 24 foundations, which is enough to complete the quilt. Farrago measures 41-1/2" across, and makes a stunning accent on a wall or table; it's an eye-popper! Pattern and foundations are available from Dayle's or directly from me. The checkout page on my website has not been updated as yet to include the patter, but if you would like to order online let me know and I can email an invoice where you can pay with a credit card. Farrago is shown here photographed against the quarry stones of the First Baptist Church in Amherst, where the diamond workshops will be held...the first in a very few short hours.
