As you can see in the photo, the sun was setting, so it isn't the greatest lighting, and I still need to trim it up, and (possibly) add some borders, but I was so excited that it was an almost quilt top, I had to share.
I'll have a tutorial for how to make those diamonds soon, but I doubt I'll write up a full pattern for this. There was a lot of
pulling ideas out of my tushy playing it by ear that went in to this quilt.
I'm kind of stressed about how I'm going to trim it up...
My sister-in-law posted some new pictures of Libby for me... it was just the little push of motivation I needed. :)
It is definitely reminding me of when her big sister Molly was brand new...
(To save from confusion -- that's Molly above, in 2008, and below was Molly at Christmastime... next to the tree skirt I made her mama...some of you have met Molly before, with this quilt...)
