I have added a new pattern to the Quiltville website!
Do you love string piecing? Do you have a bin of random sized small scraps that you just can't bear to part with? These little pieced diamonds may be just the ticket for you! I foundation pieced these little gems onto diamond shapes cut from recycled phone book pages. I also used the old fashioned tried and true method of using inset Y seams to sew this block together. I know there are "easier" methods out there, but I just didn't want additional seams in my block corners or in the side triangles. Sometimes a bit of extra effort is worth it! These block instructions will teach YOU to sew those Y seams too! Pattern available Here:
Things in Quiltville are in a bit of an upheaval as my DH continues to interview for jobs in (and out)of our area. The plant he has been working at is closing it's doors and being moved "more centrally" and combining with another plant somewhere in Iowa. No offence to Iowans....I really want to stay in the south east! He has 3 interviews pending with 3 different companies, one of which would keep us where we are and we wouldn't have to move. You know which one I am pulling and praying for?!? You got it! I want to STAY HERE!
Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers during this small upheaval in our lives. I know it is small potatoes compared to those losing their homes in california fires right now, and other places around the world. But I still need your prayers for my own sanity :c)
As the holidays come closer, I want to thank you for being part of MY quilty family of friends! I love your emails and the pics you send of the quilts you have made with the instructions and patterns from my website. I am encouraged to find I'm not the only one wondering how I ended up with so much fabric and how was I going to sew it all up in one measly life time!
