On my design wall this week is a quilt called opal variation. The original is called Opals, from a Fons and Porter. The name will probably change but Opal variation will do for now. It is made of scrappy log cabins, set together with sashing strips and cornerstones.
Mine will have the center on point with a border of white triangles, followed by the border of scrappy log cabins. Since I am designing this as I go I will have to see about the border. I may have to make the triangles bigger so the center diamond "floats" or maybe make the border log cabins a bit bigger, or increase the size of the sashing in the border to make this fit. We will just have to see when we get there!
