Knitted quilt pillows

This is the blanket pattern from Holiday Handknits made of garter stitch diamonds sewn into squares. The yarn is all leftovers. I don't love it enough to commit to a blanket. This is a very large swatch - a pillow. I think the final blanket will end up being a central 36" square pattern from the Sonia Delauney book bordered by huge plain panels of garter stitch like an Amish quilt.

Those asymetrical diamonds are already lovely. More interesting than the original Sonia Delaunay even, if I may commit a knitter's heresy.

I love what you have done, very creative. As I am in a knitting slump I need a little inspiration. I found you thru my sister Claudia.
