WIP Wednesday ~ a few things

I know I should be working on my Q3 list, but I do have 4 finishes done so far (yay, me!) and I seem to be focused on this Diamond District quilt.

So this DD quilt starts with lots of rectangles:

which are sewn together in 4s:

then cut in half and paired with another 4:

with white strips in between and triangles on the outside:

then trimmed into small blocks:

and then four of those are sewn together to make a diamond.  I've got four diamonds finished so far and I love them!

Aside from the DD quilt ~ I've made a little progress on the Dapper quilt.  I've actually finished 4 blocks so far.

I love the way the swirled seams on the pinwheels make these little pinwheels on the back.  Makes for a much flatter quilt back.

I'm guessing this quilt should come together fairly quickly, but I'm going to be adding both these quilts to my Q4 list, so no rush!

Almost forgot my September Bee Block for Newbie Quilters Hive #8 at Threadbias ~ love the bright pop of green in this B&W block!

Linking up with Freshly Pieced and Sew Fresh Quilts.


  1. I really love the Diamond District block and the colours you pick :)

  2. You have so many cute projects going. The Diamond District quilt looks fun. Thanks for the great instructions.

  3. Love the colours in that first quilt, the DD one. They are so great together. I also really like how a fairly simple block can give such a great look!

  4. You sure have been busy! Those diamond blocks do look like fun. They sure make a pretty pattern!

  5. You've got a lot of stitching going on! It looks great :)

  6. Loving your Diamond District quilt blocks - fabric selection and all!


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
