B 357 - Carmen - 7 Treasures & Diamondz

Red Batik Wholecloth with 7 Treasures & Diamondz

The fabric used in this quilt is Timeless Treasures hand dyed batik. I used two panels and pieced them to make the 60" square quilt. I placed a trio of the elements from the 7 Treasures giant template in each corner and a grouping of four elements in the center of the quilt. I used the front stylus system and the Diamondz template as well as the blade from the basic Circle Lord for the arcs to tie the diamonds, corner and center designs together. I like the 7 Treasures of Buddah template because there is a lot of open area available within the elements for additional quilting and enhancement.
