Day 289 Velvet Diamonds Quilt

OK, so I know I've gotten behind (but I have a good excuse...I got mono!)
So, here is the big make up art: a 95" x 100" quilt! Perfect for a queen size bed, but works for a king, just a little less hanging over the sides. It is made of velvet diamonds, with bright cotton borders and a fuchsia border all around.
