I finished the quilt I started quilting Saturday. It's a really pretty Stack n Whack which she made more interesting by using several different colors as the background.
Since I didn't cut the exact amount needed, I had a lot of the diamonds I cut for the St. Marks quilt left over when I was finished. I have been trying to figure out what to do with them. I actually laid them out in a scrappy Lone Star design, but decided that I didn't want to do that.
I decided I would sew them together to make a scrappy little quilt. Some colors I had a lot of leftovers, some only 1 or 2.
So I just started sewing them together, pairing up a dark and light diamond into pairs. Then I put the pairs together into sets of 4, then put some of them together in sets of 8. Because these are diagonal rows, all of the rows won't have the same amount, so I saved back some pairs to fill in.
Now I need to press these, start laying them out and see what I can come up with.
This is my first Letter E. I like it, but it is too small, so I made another one.
This one is a better size. E is for Easy! F will be too. Ok, I confess, I made F while I was making E since I will be gone all day tomorrow sewing with friends and teaching a class. I will post the pic tomorrow.
A pair of Es? Enough with the Es? If you are still thinking of joining in, do...this quiltalong is Exciting, Enticing, Exhilarating and Enormously Fun!
