What's on tap for this week, Joyful???
Emily at The Darling Dogwood proposed with diamonds.
Here's what I had to say about that...
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but SEW not this quilter's best friend!! Given the fact that you were thinking "outside the box" for your definition of diamonds, maybe I will, too. Thanks for helping me avoid a panic attack, Emily!
It's SEW good that she has us thinking outside the box! I remember that from last year's event. She "dumbs it down" for lack of a better descriptor,
I started out this week with:
When popping in the photo above, I got an idea for this week's border. I'm off to rummage through the scrap bins...
I thought square in a square, but opted to continue with my quasi-improv technique by adding flip corner on bottom left and elongated HSTs for bottom addition!!! :o))
Here's a closer look at the scraps I selected:
I cut my new border strips, a few appropriately sized squares and sewed up the new additions:
All that was left was to add them to my SAHRR block:
Is how Round TWO turned out with improv sew and flip diamond in the lower left corner. Again, I used the corner that was already on my starting block as the starting point for this addition:
Until next time...
I like how you did that, Joy! A heart in one corner and diamond in the opposite - great idea!ReplyDelete
Very clever use of a diamond!ReplyDelete
Sweet details, Joy.ReplyDelete
Very nice balance for your project. Great idea. Now on to stars!ReplyDelete
Great way to get the details in there without the quilt becoming overwhelmingly large!ReplyDelete
Sew Cute!!!! And what is better than Diamonds and hearts.....ReplyDelete
Your hearts and diamonds are so sweet. I'm enjoying watching all the SAHRRs!ReplyDelete
Love your improv diamonds! I'm going to give diamonds a whirl in my room today, wish me luck!ReplyDelete
Oh Joy, a diamond is just two triangles. I say divide and conquer. I have felt that way about flying geese. Two at a time, no-waste, blah, blah, blah. Rubbish. Geez, just put two HSTs together and voila you have a flying goose. Emily proposed with diamonds? I will say YES to that :-D even if I am not participating in the SAHRR. Happy sewing and Hugs.ReplyDelete
