It is time for a little work in progress report. I have another diamond block done. Only one as summer, the fact that Jerry is on leave and other things such as the garden are taking my time. But for all that here is another block that will go towards the diamond block quilt.
And here is a detail. As you can see I still had the Christmas threads to hand.

I am not sure if you mean how I crop the diamonds or how how I make the blocks. I crop the images in Photoshop and if you want to crop a diamond you need to turn the canvas then crop it. I hope this answers your question
I just love looking at your stitching…. I’ve spent many hours on your site just looking at the different stitches….
I just have to ask how do you make the diamond shaped pictures? I have searched and searched and can’t find out how to make different shaped pictures…
wonderful I love this so much so I have signed up for the course on joggles I did the other courses and I love them
These blocks are so wonderful. Maybe I should look at combining my love of embroidery with that of quilting.
