Diamond top, internet problems

I got one top sewn together yesterday.  I have to decided if I want to put the same border on it that was used in the Kaffe book.

I was without Internet from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. yesterday.  I called Comcast and she said there was no outage in my area.  I had no connection for an hour Tues. night too so I wondered if it was my modem.  It is the original one I got almost 8 years ago so they are going to replace it on Monday morning.  I haven't downloaded the app to let me blog from my phone and all I was able to do was put in the title line and post it yesterday, just in case I wasn't able to get on today.

Must have been the day for computer problems. Last night my problems resolved themselves. The quilt top is beautiful. The contrasts are vivid and pleasing to the eye. Great looking quilt. Chris

Every time I see your progress in this quilt I think it couldn't get any lovelier.

The quilt is gorgeous!! I just love it!! I really hate when there are cable issues. Most of the time Comcast is not too quick on the fixing part.

Love the top!!
When we had cable problems and no one else did, it was because the cable in the yard had been injured by a neighbor digging in her garden. It happened several times a year until one Comcast guy finally spent the time to properly lay the cable.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever, and that diamond quilt definitely qualifies.

Your quilt is beautiful! I am definitely adding this to my list! Can't wait to see what you decide to do with the borders.

HollyM said...

Wow, that i pretty! I like the light and dark contrast, but I also like the areas that seem to run into each other. Not sure if you know what I mean. some strips that are closer in value almost seem to run front the dark triangles into the light triangles. It makes it interesting.

Your top is beautiful! The colors (esp. the blues) seem to vibrate across the surface!

8 years..... sounds like your modem!

This quilt is just wonderful - I bet you could sit for hours looking at all the different fabrics and the play of light and dark. Thanks for sharing your process.

Gorgeous quilt!!! hey put a better border on it than Kaffe did in his book. I didn't like that at all.

Debbie said...

The diamonds live up to their name -- truly jewel-like sparkling beauties!

I hope the new modem takes care of the problem.

The diamonds look fabulous. One advantage of no computer is that you can get EVEN MORE done.

Pat said...

I had some computer problems a few weeks back and when that happens it drives me crazy. Thankfully I figured out what was wrong and took care of it.

The quilt is beautiful. I need some stash like you have. Right now am working with pastels but look forward to getting into something else.

How about this beautiful weather today?

The diamonds top is exquisite. It does indeed appear to sparkle.

Good luck with the router change. Hopefully it'll be just what you need.

It looks great!

Your quilt looks fantastic! My computer gave me a lot of trouble too. It zapped me when I turned it on and totally died a week or so ago. It was old, so instead of fixing it I bought a new computer. Hope to be back to blogging as soon as I figure everything out.

As I scrolled down my Google Reader I saw the thumbnail of this quilt before I saw your name, and I knew it was yours immediately!
Wow, that's beautiful.
