Diamond Economy


Somehow, a diamond economy sounds better than economy diamonds! Either way, I think it's better than square-in-a-square-in-a-square-in-a-square, lol.

Anyway, I finished these up this morning, and yesterday I finished the last eleven four patch diamonds. As I did the final trim, I found a little bit of serendipity:


An orange flower was centred perfectly in the block, completely by accident, not once, but twice!


So, I'm on a roll, and next time I plan to show you what it's all for.

Oh, and by the way, that extra pin in the seam that I mentioned last time made all the difference! The last batch was much more consistent. And, isn't it interesting how the blue sky outside made these photos bluer than the last post? The colours were more accurate last time.

  1. I suspect diamond economy is a more accurate description than economy diamonds - in terms of time if not money! It's looking good. Glad the extra pin worked and looking forward to seeing the grand scheme!

    1. LOL, thanks, Jillian! I'm looking forward to putting it up on the wall to see how it all looks too!

  2. I am drawn more and more to these traditional blocks. Maybe it's the influence of the "modern" quilters who like to use them in an updated way, making them seem attractive again and fresh. Anyway, love the colors and anxious to see the overall project.

  3. These blocks are so pretty and the jewel colours suit the name diamond economy or economy diamond!
