My Confession

Yes, here it is, I’m going to make a public confession in hopes of trying to get this project re-booted.

This quilt was started a year ago.
The name of the quilt is “Diamonds are forever”, funny… that’s how long it’s taking me !

I started with alot of enthusiasm and gusto but…. that fizzled.
I think, probably because it was really slow going. Well, ok, I’m really slow going.
Last winter I completed about 35 , 8.5″ blocks and I plan on getting back at it this winter and be finished this winter sometime ( maybe I should be more specific for the time frame ???? )

I put what I have so far back up on the wall to photograph it in no particular order, definitely not the final arrangement for the blocks.


I think I knew last winter that it was going on the back burner the moment I started taking the blocks down to ‘temporarily’ make room for another smaller project.

Anyways, that’s my confession and by sharing it here as a WIP I’m challenging myself to get back at it and get ‘er done !
Please cheer me on by leaving a comment if you have ever made a string quilt and have some speed tips please share them ! – the clickie thing is up at the top of the post on the left

    Don’t feel badly! I’ve a string project that’s been in progress since April 2013. I’ve about 15 more blocks to go before I’ll be ready to call the top done and ready to quilt.

    Hi! Colleen
    Well! It’s good to ‘fess up and put your WIP out for all to see! I especially like the half diamonds around two of the sides – makes a great border for the diamonds in the middle. Sorry I can’t give any advice not having made this type of block before but keep going…

    Stunning! Will be well worth it when it’s finally finished.
