PQ 13.4 Mining For Diamonds

Let’s face it – this time of year, the deck is stacked: you’ll find hearts in spades. But let’s go against the club and double down on DIAMONDS for this challenge.There are lots of ways to get there: you might choose to combine triangles, split a rectangle, or even work your best inset seams.I don’t care if you focus on the rhombus, use a quilt block that incorporates the shape (LeMoyne Star, anyone?) or instead be inspired by the facets of a true stone.

This was the prompt we received for the challenge this week from Kim. Seeing the logo for this challenge made me think of some cute card fabric that I had. Then I remembered that I had used all but a few scraps when I made a caddy for DH when he had his knee replacement surgery last year. 🤔

Then I was talking with my granddaughter to see if she has any word yet on her medical appointments. She asked me if I could make a little runner of a specific size. Her dresser has a built in shelf. It’s the one she puts her jewelry on at night, but often has the jewelry knocked around and has managed to lose some earrings. I asked her to measure the shelf and got to playing with some fun scraps in happy, bright colours.

In my mind this young woman is a real diamond; she can always make me smile or laugh, and is a very energetic Mom to two pretty incredible kids. 🤗

I really had fun playing with the quilting, doing some STD, and matchstick quilting before I used the backing for self binding the quilt.

It was popped in the mail today and hopefully, will give my girl a little smile and hug from her Nana. 🤗

Once again I need to thank Trish (aka QUILTchicken) and Kim of Persimmon Dreams for keeping us on our toes with such fun challenges to make a quilt/project in a week!

Thank you for stopping by to read my post. 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
