It's the last day of the Be a Diamond blog hop. There have been amazing quilts posted this week, all connected with the diamond theme.
You will never guess what happened?
As a result of all the inspiration, I remembered that I had been given a bag of triangle scraps at the last guild meeting, and you know what 2 triangles make? A diamond shape! The triangles were hand traced from old scraps and I could see the drawn lines on many of the pieces.
In addition to the triangles, there were actually some round brilliant cut diamond shapes in the bag. See them on the bottom left of the photo?
That was odd. There was no way to fit those pieces together with the triangles but some of them were cut from the same fabrics so I don't know what the project creator had in mind for these pieces.
I just couldn't stop playing with the triangles until this happened. I made a wall hanging size quilt top. When the triangles were used up, the quilt was big enough! I think I'll trim up the sides, add a couple of borders, and ta da... another project waiting for quilting!
Thanks for Carol for organizing the blog hop and thank you to all the participants for sharing their creativity and inspiration with us!
