The banners for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi are diamond patchwork! This is an intentional salute to the diversity of cultures of the world, including their arts and crafts. Design your own diamond patchwork quilt. There are many ways to interpret this theme. It could be related to the Olympics, or not. Diamonds must be the primary shape used in the patchwork or applique, but that shape can be mixed with others.
You might be inspired by the work of Jan Krentz, author of “Diamond Quilts and Beyond,” which was translated by the publisher into Russian a few years ago! How relevant is that now!
