Design Wall Monday #22 - Unbroken Dishes

I finally finished a quilt top and it's on my design wall today! Woohoo!
I had to agree with the cornerstone votes that y'all gave me on this post. The overwhelming majority voted for the diamond cornerstones, and I think it looks great, if I do say so myself.

It looks even scrappier in person, has a definite autumn feeling to it. As soon as I put it up on the wall, it started demanding some hand quilted diamond designs! I know better than to argue with these creative flashes, and I jotted down some notes. When I finish the hand quilting on my "Quilter's Blessings", I plan to hand quilt this one. It's the perfect size for a portable hand quilting project.
What's on your design wall today? Hop over to Patchwork Times and see what other quilters are working on.
PS - Did you see that Judy is going to offer another Quilt Along starting next Monday?!? Click here for the details.

I love how your project turned out. I also especially enjoyed your heading picture. What a beautiful set-up. If I tried that I'd spill the drink first off and never get to the photography. What a happy, bright picture.

The diamond corner stones do look great. Beautifully done quilt, especially the use of color.

I saw Judy's new quilt along. I'm not done with the last one, but don't think I can resist this one either.

It really sparkles--especially with those cornerstones. Makes me think of a late autumn afternoon with the golden light just before dusk. I love all things in fall colors! : )
