I've built my block early to share.
I have 5 grandchildren and 4 daughters all coming this month. I'll not be sewing during the month of July.:D I also will most likely be among the missing here for a bit. You all have fun while I'm playing with the kids. I'll check back when I can to see all the wonderful diamonds you're making. Post lots of pictures, please!

It's not the traditional Amish Diamond dark colors but I am building a pink quilt!

Still trying to keep up with my big sister; she made me sew mine early too!

Now for me it's back to work on a wedding quilt for my buddy of 30 years. (Wish I'd chosen a pattern as nice and simple as this Amish Diamond!)

Another 6-inch block

These diamonds are multiplying quickly.

Patrice and ceannastahr you two win the happy face :lol: for first done in July. (Marcella and I did ours in June. Marcella only because I brow beat her into it!:wink: ) Your blocks are great.

It's fun to do a quick block from time to time. It still gives us lots of practice matching points and seams and yet little stress.

Way to go!
P.S.
Is anyone else making a collection of these BOMs? I'd love to see the whole group.

Great idea, Patrice! Maybe like a page you can edit and add as they grow. The only problem I see is me trying to catch up. :lol:
