So I think this is getting boring, but it's all I've been doing, so here are the diamonds again. This is the finished quilt top. (I'm quilting it at the moment) I have had some questions, so I thought I would answer them here. I put the diamonds together with the sewing machine, not by hand. I have always been a machine piecer and quilter. My excuse has always been that I don't have time to do anything by hand, but I think that I just like the look of machine pieced and quilted quilts. I guess I am impatient too. Mary said that it looked like snowflakes to her and that's kind of what I had in mind. I want to applique some raindrops on it as well. Not sure how they will look yet. I have a couple of ideas in mind and I will see what they look like once I get to that point. I am very much a "see how it goes" quilter. I don't often have hard and fast ideas. One of the reasons I like to quilt is to express an idea. This quilt is a story from my life. (I'll tell you the story when I show you the finished quilt.) So, back to the sewing machine.
