Work in Progress Wednesday

Here I am frantically waving the last – yes you hear right THE LAST of the diamond blocks!!! I am doing a happy dance around the kitchen – in fact around the whole house. As I said last week, I have been plodding along with these for so long, I am really looking forward to seeing this quilt assembled and finished.

As usual if you click on the images you can go to a larger version.

These are little plain but once set in the and viewed against the more heavily embellished blocks they will act as a little rest for the eye.

Here are all the blocks set out on lounge room floor. As you can see the blocks will be set in a tumbling block pattern. The blocks measure 15 cm (6 inches) across the middle on short crossing and 27 cm (10.5 inches) across the long section.

I plan to document and blog the process of assembling the quilt. So expect a few work in progress reports as I can’t hang about. I want to put it in the Embroiderers’ Guild Exhibition and the form (with description and measurements) is due on the 31st of August. I don’t have to have totally finished until mid September but I do need to have the top done as they need to know the size for the catalogue. So if blogging is a bit slap dash you know why!

Work in Progress Wednesday

I am sure regular readers will be pleased to read that after these two blocks I only have 3 more diamond blocks to embellish.

In other words the time where I am no longer inflicting my poor readers with these is nearly up! Since this has been such a slow project I am really looking forward to assembling and completing this quilt.

I was asked last week about the size of the blocks. 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.

There is a bit of a floral/garden theme running over the quilt and as I have mentioned before when I chose the fabric for these blocks if it was a patterned piece I chose a paisley design of some sort. The Paisley pattern at its history is linked to the tree of life designs so I am sure you can see the thematic connections.

As usual if you click on the images you can go to a larger version.

Enjoy and lets hope I have the last three blocks for you next week!
