DIADEM was created specifically with the Elizabeth and True colors fabric collection by Tula Pink in mind. When I first saw the collection, the idea of a crown came to mind. I decided to focus on the essence of a crown – its jewels. The fabrics are bright, sparkling, and lighter than normal jewel tones, so I went with a simpler block shape and interspersed some diamonds in the blank spaces. The heaviness of the crown was replaced by the delicate tiara.
This pattern was first featured in the January 2016 issue of AQ magazine.
