I finally decided on a new hand sewing project to take to doctor's appointments and such.
I'm using some wonderful fabric that I bought from Barb awhile back. I was first thinking about making a Lone Star quilt but I couldn't decide on what order to use the colors and how many rows of each, etc. So instead I am making these stars. I'm leaning towards using a light grey fabric for the fill in diamonds in between the flowers. I'll know if a light grey will work after I get a bunch more stars put together.
Right now I am battling a rotten asthma attack and can't concentrate very well. Basting these little diamonds are a real no brainer so this is about all I have been working on lately.
This is the container I use to store my in progress diamonds. I think the diamonds will sew together a bit easier if I iron them first. This is the first time I have hand sewn diamonds. I usually work with hexagons but diamonds are fun if not a bit fiddly. Next month I need to order some orange, brown, and yellow. Eventually I would like this to be a king size quilt. When it is all put together I also plan on hand quilting it. I'm kind of excited about working on this project.
