Hello Everyone,

Do you remember the quilt that I had on the design wall that I needed to finish?  Well, I am just about there, so I thought I would show you my progress.

I have decided to call it Diamonds in the Rough.

Basically, I just played with scraps of Kaffe Fassett and Kona Cotton White and made Half Square Triangles.  Then laid it on the design wall until I made a design that pleased me.  You can see how I make HSTs by using my tutorial here.

I love the color!

Look...  a very cute quilt inspector has dropped by to check my quarter inch seams.  Looks like the smell okay...

Oh no, a second quilt inspector.  Looks like he might be checking the same seam!! Hmmm... maybe I ought to check them too??

Guess they must have checked out okay, they have decided to sit for a while.

So this is what it looked like before.

Here is what it looks like now.  I think I am going to add some white borders and then quilt it up!

Also, I wanted to ask you all a favor... Would you mind clicking on the heart on my Spring Fling Quilt here on Craftsy?  I have entered it in a contest and the more hearts I have the better chance I have at winning.  Just "Heart" me by clicking on the little heart!  Thank you!!

Until Next Time...
