Hungarian Dear Jane!

One of the showcases at the Festival of Quilts contained Hungarian blue and white quilts which were very striking and attracting lots of attention.

One of them was a Dear Jane with a difference. As you can see the blocks are the same but they have been converted into diamonds.

I love how the maker has added one red block in the top corner.It really was a lovely quilt!

I have edited this post so that you can click on the photos to make them larger!

Wow! Do you mind if I share some of these photos with the DBJ'ers? I'll include a link to your blog.

Wow! This is an amazing quilt! This must be based on the quilt by Linda Franz. She wrote a great book on hand piecing called Quilted Diamonds (as well as a sequel), which is one of my favorite references for hand piecing.

That's definitely a Quilted Diamond quilt. Linda did use the DJ blocks and drew them into diamond shapes. This is a lovely quilt!
