    Looks like it's coming along great! That AQC would have to be a Christmas gift to me from someone. But at least you have it to work with. Love it. Going to be beautiful when it's done because it already is.

    I am also working on this pattern (and it is a long way from my first quilt, but still a bit intimidating). Well, I got the first row of diamonds put together and then the 2nd row which is the squares with set in seams. But, duh!, I miscut the pieces for the first diamonds, compounded with miscutting the no. of pieces needed for the second row of diamonds. SO -- called Keepsake to see if I could replace the fabric. I didn't purchase the kit. I am making this for a friend who was absolutely too intimidated to even try. Keepsake found the records where my friend had purchased this kit in 2011; then very promptly and courteously is sending me more of that fabric at no charge. Woo Hoo for Keepsake!
