Today i want you to introduce my teddy bears, my other addiction.These guys are sitting on the replica of a toy chair that belonged to my aunt when she was a little girl. This one was made by my brother in law, Henk B, thank you Henk, you've put so many hours to make it!
And these are the crumb diamonds i told you about a couple of days ago, i'm not sure about the sashing fabric, there might be a lack of contrast. It is beautiful BRAQUENIE fabric,it might be more suitable for a flying geese quilt perhaps. Once again your comments are very welcome.
There is something weird about the crumbs, or should i say Gremlins, I made 45 diamonds, and the quantity of left overs seem to be more than when i started! I really love scrap quilts the most and i'm determined to use all the bits and pieces! Happy quilting, tomorrow is finger day,never do what i did: PUT YOUR FOOT OFF THE PEDAL WHILE THREADING YOU MACHINE!


I forgot to mention the size of the diamonds: 8 inches, roughly 20 cm for a side. Freezerpaper on the back for more accurancy.

Love your teddy bears! I have not bought any in years, but I have about 95 bears. The crumb diamonds are beautiful!

The diamonds are fabulous. I did one quite similar last year called Dizzy Diamonds using civil war reproduction fabric. it was a guild challenge to make a string quilt.

I LOVE the crumb diamond. That sashing fabric is too busy, not enough contrast - i think the whole thing would just blur together. I'm so glad you're enjoying the magazines!

Superbes tes losanges et bon choix de tissu intermédiaire. J'ai hâte de le voir monté !
