Project Quilting 13.4 Diamonds

 Project Quilting is hosted by Kim Lapacek of Persimon Dreams. In this week's challenge, we were to use Diamonds. We could combine triangles, or split rectangles. It didn't need to be literal, we just need to explain our use of diamonds.

I wasn't sure how I wanted to approach this challenge, I was limited by time constraints as it was a busy week dealing with a family member. All is well, just real-life stuff happening.

Feeling inspired I fired up EQ8 and started playing with triangles and squares, what evolved was a paper pieced pattern. Not the best idea when I didn't have a lot of time. But I like a challenge and this was a challenge.

Not looking much like diamonds, except the corners do have a diamond shape. Right? Loving the green, which may have something to do with it being my favourite colour.


ready to add a couple borders too

diamonds quilted in the centre pieces

I quilted diamonds in the centres, this is a take on an Angela Walters design. I also quilted diamond shapes in the four corners.

Of course, when one is pressed for time, it seems everything that can go wrong does.


oops, ripping time here I come

And it didn't stop there. When trimming the sides after I was done free motion quilting it, my ruler slipped and I cut more off the sides than I really wanted to.

then there was a game of binding chicken, I won


Whew! I made it

I like the star in the design. I think I accomplished the challenge.

I like it a lot and it will be perfect for upcoming March holiday. Doesn't have to be shamrocks, diamonds work in my book! You persevered, even with the few oopsies! Congrats!
