"Diamonds are a girl's best friend"(and so are swap Mammas!)

I have started piecing my diamonds and have had a lovely time playing! I have no particular plan for this quilt, just a hazy picture in my mind of how it should be. I love to work like this. It is the most fun and I find that all sorts of ideas seem to flood into my head when I work like this. (Not always to do with the project at hand either!) Of course, it's a little scary working without a net (I mean plan!), so if I am making something for me very often this is the time that the project gets put away into a cupboard. This, however, is my four seasons quilt swap and MUST be finished! Which is a great motivator and the way my quilting skills grow. I am so grateful for all the swap Mammas who dedicate time to running swaps. You are the best!
