I finished the quilt top on Friday.
Not too bad for a day's work :)
This was my first every diamond pattern.
Why didn't anyone tell me how challenging
it is to sew everything in diagonal lines?
Well I guess the sewing diagonal lines wasn't the challenge,
but lining up all the intersections was the real challenge.
I had to get up close and personal with my seam ripper
quite a few times to get those little diamonds to line up.
Now for the really hard part......
trying to decide exactly how to quilt it.
Don't you just love all those polka dots?
I do :)
And I had to throw in some gingham just for good measure!
Today it's back to work on project bags.
I'm hoping to get started on the hand quilting in the evenings
while the hubs watches his
"shoot-em-up-everyone-dies" kinda movies :)
