This week I've been able to work on my scrappy trip along and have had lots of fun! I think it is one of my favorite blocks to make. Such a fun and simple process and you can't stop at just one block! Thanks so much for all your ideas and words of encouragement from my last post!
As you can see I kept the dark block and made some more with black and charcoal. It think it is really going to add a great contrast which is what this type of quilt is suppose to have.
To go a little faster I've started to do 3-4 at a time. I love being able to add that many to the layout at one time. Instant enjoyment!!
I did a couple layouts as I wasn't sure if I liked the black really scattered. I thought it would be fun to have a couple of the diamonds really pop. What do think, do you like the dark blocks scattered or together? Here is a picture of them scattered~
This week I found a lovely crocheted diamond afghan at a thrift store so I thought I'd show you! I love quilted ones, and a crochet one is just as beautiful! Isn't it lovely!
I've also enjoyed taking my boys to the library. It had been awhile since we had gone and it is great to get back to going regularly again! It is such a peaceful place to spend a little part of your day! Here are some of the books I've been enjoying. I have several projects I can't wait to start!
I hope everyone had a lovely week and wishing you a wonderful week-end!
