New week and feeling better

It's a brand new week and I finally feel better. It is hard to live with a chronic condition so I tend to embrace the good days.

This week on my design wall....still working on my Diamonds are a girl's best friend. Scrappy borders are so fun. You can use a roll of paper and just use the scraps you have on hand.

Those a little pearls I want to use for the quilting. One little pearl at the corners of the squares I've drawn. I will let you know if it is a brilliant idea after a few 100 of them O_O

What else, oh yes, I saw this traditional block called Ocean Waves. Loved it and would be perfect for a boat theme quilt I have in mind. The problem is that I have problems piecing triangles....I really suck at it. I am testing with paper piecing and I think I found the solution at my problem. 

 I am also writing the pattern for my Turtle applique. I am also doing a video because I used Inktense on the scale and it is easier to show than to write it down. She is 20" x 16" but I might make a bigger pattern too. I am not sure yet.


  1. That diamond block is beautiful, the scrappy borders are a perfect choice! Is the diamond applique or pieced? I can't tell for sure!

  2. good to read you are feeling better. So in awe of your work diamond is amazing and loving the turtle too

  3. I love those scrappy borders!! And so fun to see you in the 2017NQB group!
