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.

  1. I was looking to see if I could find the blocks you showed seperately at the top but couldn’t find them and found myself thinking they’d be round the back of the block!
    It works so well.
    In my quilting days this was one of my favourites.
