Here I am again with my Work in Progress Wednesday waving another two block around. Actually these are really very useful for me as they keep me on track.

I really hope people are not as tired of these diamond blocks as I am but have done two more diamond blocks to show you. Click on the images to go to larger size and see them closer.

These are both dark blocks. The first is more complex than the second. It looks a bit fuzzy but that is a feature of the fact that the brown paisley fabric is velvet.

As I have mentioned before the patterned fabrics on all these blocks are a paisley design. I collected paisley fabric for years.  Many of the fabrics are recycled mens ties. In the block above the brown paisley fabric is from a mans tie. The orange pattern at the end is silk received from a swap. I hope when the quilt is finished people will enjoy all the varieties of paisley fabrics.

Also there is a definite garden theme running throughout the motifs. This also relates to the Paisley as a pattern coming from India. The shape was adapted from a seed pod motif.

For those who have forgotten how these blocks will be set.

The blocks measure 15 cm (6 inches) across the middle on short crossing and 27 cm (10.5 inches) across the long section and I plan to set them in a tumbling block pattern.

I am on the homeward stretch with this and looking forward to working a square block again!

Work in Progress Wednesday

Hi all here I am waving two more diamond blocks around with a silly expression on my face that really says “Am I a good girl or what?”

This week I had one more light block. There is a couple more  light diamonds and I am done. In fact I am really on the homeward stretch now.

This darker block I am very pleased to see done as it has been pinned up on my ‘thinking’ board for months. For some reason I had a block with this that would not shift at all! I decided to sit at it until done. I did it and it is OK now.  I am sure every crazy quilt has a block was a battle.

I thought you would like a detail.

Just a reminder for those who have not see it. This is how the diamonds will be set. These are the blocks right at the start of the process as they are pieced but not yet embellished.

The blocks measure 15 cm (6 inches) across the middle on short crossing and 27 cm (10.5 inches) across the long section and I plan to set them in a tumbling block pattern.
