CAN YOU SEE THIS IN A QUILT?

Another quick block.  Another quick post.  This is one more block from Fat Quarterly’s book Shape Workshop for Quilters.  This block is called Diamond In A Diamond.  Trust me; it is not as easy as it looks. It is pieced, NOT paper pieced. But it was fun to try and stretch my skills. I do like this block and can see it in a quilt.  Can’t you?

ON ANOTHER NOTE
Quilters Road Trip is being held during the months of April, May, and June.  Twelve area shops are participating.  You get a chance to win a $25 gift certificate each month at each shop.  Also available will be new projects, patterns and giveaways.  You can get your Passport at the Attic Window Quilt Shop for only $5.

SOMETHING TO LOOK INTO
Happy Quilting has a tutorial for a Going Dutch Block.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

12 nice sharp points coming together beautifully. No more posts about your lack of piecing skills! ;D

Love this block!! Love your colors!! I can definitely see this in a quilt, as part of a sampler of modern blocks or as a quilt of this just this block. Super great work!

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

Yep, yep, yep. Can totally see that in a quilt. I think your piecing skills must be getting pretty dang good, because it looks just great! Well done. Hope you are getting some rest.
