Another Diamond block

Another Diamond block

It’s time for another my weekly report on the state of my WISPs (Works in Slow Progress) as part of Sandie’s UFO and WISP challenge.

This time I have completed a block from start to finish with both embroidery and beading done. As you can see it is another light tone block.

Once again it is a block for the diamond block quilt I am working on. It is inspired – or the shape of the blocks were inspired by a quilt made by Martha Bingley in 1883.

Above is a detail of the floral spray section on the block

A detail of one of the seam embellishments …

Another seam embellishment which is alternating barred chain worked in fine knitting wool then decorated with flower shaped beads.

That’s it for this week. I would have liked to get more done but I have also been working on samples for the next class I will offer at joggles.


  1. That’s another beautiful diamond. I particularly like this flower spray, as well as the flower-sequin seam. Thanks for sharing your own work with us, still.
