My First Diamond

I have succumbed to Diamond Fever. Linda Franz books, Quilted Diamonds and Quilted Diamonds 2, are to die for....very very nice.

This is my first diamond - called "Our hearts must understand each other ere long" - No.7 - I thought I would make one seeing as the virtual retreat is on this weekend.

I have decided to make a table cloth using the seven sisters block placement. I will be using these two fabrics only - a nice purple batik and a white and pastel fabric. So I have 42 blocks in total to make and I have chosen mostly the star and heart patterned diamonds. I will call my table cloth "Delightfully Delicious Dining Diamonds" - Hopefully I won't be pulled into making all diamonds from the two books. Thanks Linda and Monkey for introducing me to these little lovlies.

Jane, your first diamond is so pretty. They are like chips - it's difficult to make just one. Enjoy.
