Diamond block, -the way its intended UPDATE

If you go back to my previous post "Diamond block -the way its intended" you'll see what a mess I've made of a block which should be so simple.  I completely went at it all wrong, and I'm so glad I went back to change it.

Here is a sneak peak of my quilt.  I've finished basting it this afternoon, and I will start quilting tomorrow.




Happy quilting

Love your colors and love this block! I love that you added the polka dot purple for your border. It already looks so nice! Can't wait to see it done!

Oh cool you are using the boards to baste, I watched the tutorial by Sharon Schamber about this and I've been wanting to try it, does it work really well?

I shared her video tutorial on my facebook page just a few days ago and decided to give it try. So far I've been doing all my basting on the floor, and by the time I was done, my whole body ached. Its easy, and works great, my boards are still a bit long, but I think I'll keep it the length it is, just in case I make a bigger quilt one day.

I've made my own stencil, its sort of a mix between a flower and a leaf..

Thanks Rosemary, I hope to get it done soon.
