Hand Pieced Diamonds Ready for Layout





This is an old one!

I started these hand pieced diamonds back in 2011. Woah. For a few years it was my go-to hand project. Never a complaint about doing them at all. Then handwork fell to the side as my baby boy got bigger. Then I discovered appliqué. I'm sure I haven't sewn a stitch on this in at least 3 years.

In my recent clean-up of Quilts Under Construction I pulled these out for closer inspection. I even pressed them for the first time. Oy. There is a lot of mismatched seams. Oh well. And clearly I kept cutting them bigger because the more recent section does not match the original section at all. That's because I didn't use the same template throughout. I just grabbed a random diamond every time I needed to make more. Oh well.

Now I think it might be time to turn these into something. I did quite enjoy the hand piecing so I am going to continue with that. But first I have to decide on a layout.



Something like was my first instinct. That way it doesn't matter if the diamonds don't line up. Or maybe pull that small section out a bit further? And do something with those extra bits currently just pinned to the wall on the left.



Then I thought of doing something like this. Quite different. And now those extra bits could find a home. Or not.

I'll let them sit for a bit, but hopefully not five more years!

I love your fabrics and the way you put them together. Your second proposed design speaks to me much more clearly than the first. The simplicity lets your beautiful piecing be the star of the show without being overwhelmed by a bigger design element. Definitely worth finishing--not just because you have put so much work into it, but because it will make a very special quilt.

Very eye-catchinig and I look forward to seeing what you decide.

Love your diamonds. I have some elongated hexis that have sat for years as well.

i like the second layout the best. lots of negative space, and I like the way the extra (smaller) diamonds just drip off the third column. i'll be waiting to see what you do with it! today is my first session of a quilt class I'm teaching at my LQS- it's a scraps class, and I'm using your book SUnday Morning Quilts as my inspiration and jump-off! going to encourage my students to organize and USE their fabric!

Love the layout! Too much symmetry is boring!

Hand pieced--Wowzers!

I like the second layout, but I want the last three strips to be in line with the other columns. Like columns along a walkway you see going into the distance. That doesn't make any sense. This is what I mean:

My misplaced cash of roughly $180k were found and recovered. I had my trading money unloaded by a broker who for three months refused to give me access to my trading account, and I had no idea that I would be able to recover it.

Cyberguard Security Company are the most trusted and reliable recovery Agents in this modern day. They are the best recovery specialists out there that I have come into contact with. Few months ago, I was scammed $395,000 worth of BTC by someone who pretended to be a Forex trader online and convinced me to invest in cryptocurrency.
I invested on this site and ended up paying more just to withdraw my profit which I paid capital for. I noticed I was being used and scammed at the same time. I went online and that is when I came across various people testifying about CYBER GUARD and how they have helped many in recovering their funds. I contacted them via email:thecyberguardtcg@gmail.com and to my surprise, he recovered all that I lost in less than 2 days.
I will always be grateful for the job well done. They are can also be contacted via Whatsapp which is +1 (252)205-0270

I lost access to my Crypto when the wallet service I was using went offline permanently. So I have been struggling for months to try and figure out how I will access my wallet again. After much struggle, a co worker of mine referred me to SPYHOST CYBER SECURITY COMPANY. I was pleased with their services because their communication was quick, transparent, and professional. I provided the necessary requirements to them and that was the beginning of my journey of my successful recovery. In short, they really renewed my hope and brought me happiness once more which i never thought could be possible. Spyhost was very responsive to emails and after some hours (48) they recovered my wallet. They acted professionally and in accordance with our agreement and without doubt i was suprised and convinced that we still have some trustable recovery company out there of which Spyhost is one I would highly recommend using Spyhost Cyber Security Company. For anyone who are in same situation as me or in need of other sort of help related to crypto funds recovery below is their email contact to send a request or complaint ( spyhost@cyberdude. com) while their whatsapp contact is [ +1(571) 478-7636 ]
