Diamonds Are Forever
Well, these will last a while to be sure. This is my *in-between* project while the winter keeps me out of the sewing room.
(Couldn't be anything to do with the fact it's a mess in there)
I've had the idea for this quilt for a little while now but was spurred on when I read Pam Bunda's article about make-do quilts in the April issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.
How funky is that cover quilt?! May have to put that on the to-do list as well.
I'll be adding a soft white to the mix when I find the right one. Hmm, I feel a shop hop coming on.....

Diamonds are very eye appealing and the funky quilt is another gee whiz wish I had enough time and energy quilt.ReplyDelete
Your diamonds are gorgeous! So is Pam Bunda's blog! So glad you shared both. Can't wait to see the diamond "setting"! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
I love the idea of "make do and mend", these type of quilts seem to have so much more character. I look forward to watching your progress. :-)ReplyDelete
The Diamonds are beautiful! Great job! Love the idea of "making do" - isn't that how quilting all started? Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
There is nothing better than stars IMHO :0) I'm not much of a stash buster so I'm not so sure I'll ever make a "make do" quilt...besides shopping is much more fun LOL.ReplyDelete
Love your block and that cover quilt is stunning! Are those yo-yos?ReplyDelete
Your block is so pretty! What precision! I've been looking at that cover quilt, too. One of these days . . .ReplyDelete
Very pretty block! It will make a stunning quilt!ReplyDelete
Your block looks great! Everything fits perfectly! I love that cover quilt, too. I have so many ideas for future projects, I hope I can just do some of them!ReplyDelete
What fun projects! But winter? Yeah, I guess you're far enough south for that...it's steaming hot up here! I look forward to seeing how both quilts come together.ReplyDelete
That is a lovely combination of diamonds. Is this your hand-sewn set-in seam project?ReplyDelete
Looks awesome. Very effectiveReplyDelete
That's a great project!ReplyDelete
Your block looks great! perfectly pieced.ReplyDelete
I really liked that cover quilt too. So many quilts...too little time.
I am new to blogging but loving the way the groups all share their ideas and beautiful work.
So hear you about the sewing room. I have taken over the dining room and not sure if I am coping with the mess moving into the main part of the house but........ one needs to sew.
Be looking forward to the warmer weather.
Hello Ann, Your block looks great! Those srappy cover quilts can get me in trouble!!! I wished I had more time too!ReplyDelete

Hi Ann, your block looks pretty. I have the magazin but have not read all of the article yet.ReplyDelete
Like the front quilt too :o)
Oh my - I need to look for that magazine (it is here somewhere) because those bow ties are really popping into my life right now.ReplyDelete
Your work is always stunning Ann. The diamonds and the circles on the funky quilt scare me, so I am enjoying seeing your progress.ReplyDelete
