Kathie Beltz: Quilter, Teacher, Judge

Sparkle, sparkle!For this week's #quiltspiration post, you're getting more than just your weekly dose of inspiration; you're also getting a sneak peek at our newest pattern 💎

Diamonds, pearls . . . which one is a girl's best friend? Well, why not both!? Inspired by shimmering diamonds and glistening pearls, my newest pattern uses a combination of faceted diamond blocks made with the Split Rects and pearl-like Square Squared units to create elegant strands of diamonds and pearls across your quilt top.

Our newest pattern, Diamonds & Pearls, will be available for order soon!
