Quilt of the Month: Oblique by Diana Vandeyar

"This quilt is all about color interaction — and I love dramatic color juxtapositions. There are nine 20" x 20" blocks, which are easy to construct with paper-piecing. This is a very forgiving pattern, and there are no matching seams within the blocks. Paper-piecing basics are required, but otherwise this is a very straight forward pattern which creates a striking design. This quilt was so much fun to make, and I hope you enjoy it too." –Diana Vandeyar
