    Some days are diamonds.

    That's how I feel this week. I'm on a roll. I've completed two quilts in two days (trimming and binding only) Feels good! My goal is to complete at least one quilt a month. I easily have that many tops in the queue.

    I used Mary Johnson's instructions to construct this one.

    Beautiful use of "scraps".... that word hardly seems to fit when the fabrics sparkle like this.
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    That's a real beauty! Looks like what you see when you look into one of those kalidascopes. (I think I spelled this wrong, but hopefully you know what I mean)

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    awesome, love the brights so pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Love your quilt and thanks for the instruction link! I prefer your design with all black stars that become the background for the bright strip diamonds rather than the colored stars.

    Really beautiful! I did one like this and really loved it--sadly, it was a gift, so if I want to look at it, I have to go visit it. I'm planning another--yellow stars this time, I think. Already have a recipient in mind--I guess I'll have to visit that one, too!
