Diamonds

These are some of the fabrics I bought yesterday at the Patchwork Apple. They are for a secret project I am working on. I am using diamonds, which I have never done before, so it is all very thrilling and exciting. I love that I can be excited by a simple stitching project! I'm going to sleep now to dream about my stitching!

very pretty fabric! I dream about quilts - in color. I started keeping a notebook by my bed so that I could jot down what I had dreamt before it's forgotten.

A star quilt of some type maybe?
Thats if it is going to be a quilt, I like the colours as well, but I don't envy you all the cutting out of the diamonds.
take care

The colours of your fabrics are so nice......beautiful....very calming colours. I will be most interested to see what transpires with this project and to eventually see the finished product. It's fun to try new ideas and challenges.

How exciting! Diamonds! That spot and striped one is a good addition too.
Had some catching up to do, being away for a week, hence seeing you 'old' (sorry) photo! Time flies doesn't it. Do we still feel that young? Not really but it certainly doesn't feel 25 years ago!

the fabrics look gorgeous. i love the colours. i'm very excited to see what becomes of all the diamonds.
i've been making new pot holders today. i washed my old ones the other day and they have fallen to bits so i decided i could makes some. i'm pretty pleased with them - i just have to stitch the binding on and they are done. i will hopefully be able to post about it soon. isn't it such a thrill to make something new :)
