Progress on diamonds.......

I needed mostly light bordered diamonds to finish the rows on the design wall.  I got this batch done the last 2 evenings.
This is the next group to sew.
I started auditioning fabrics for the borders of the edge half diamonds.  I have decided that the half diamonds will be all the same fabric but the borders on them might be more than one fabric.  I have also decided on one more row in length and chose all of the fabrics for that too.  I need to have some rows sewn before next Monday when my art quilters group will be here.  There is nothing like a deadline to get me back on track.

I like the idea of the borders being the same fabric and having the dark sashing. It will definitely frame up the quilt. I definitely know what you mean about a deadline too. It works for me the same way.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you are a master of determining value and contrast in you work. That's what makes it so enticing!

I really like the idea of the border half diamonds being the same fabric. It is going to be a stunning quilt. I'm glad you have a deadline because that means we'll get to see the finished top sooner than later.

Wow, now I see why you need the lighter borders, glad you posted a picture. Your sense of color and value continues to amaze me!

This one just makes me think of a big, beautiful box of chocolates, each in its own little frame, and each totally enticing.

Those diamonds are just breath taking. Fabrics to 'knock your socks off" Love watching this one grow. It has been one of my many favorites.

Good Luck, with your deadline. I discovered over the course of my life, that I detested deadlines- they never seemed to bring out the best in me. Gom, however, thrived on pressure and positively shone in such times. Different strokes, I guess.
Love the diamonds.

I am lovin' the quilt. The colors are fantastic. Deadlines are always good to have to keep you in the groove.
