A few months back I bought this book at the bookstore. I love scrap quilts and most of what I make are scrap quilts, so these string pieced blocks are perfect for the odd little pieces leftover.
This is the quilt that I plan on making with my diamonds! It is called "Diamond Strings with Lattice" I really like it! Here are a couple of other quilts that are in the book that you could use the diamonds for. This one is called "Scrap Happy"
And this one is called "Eight Point Stars"
I'm sure there are other patterns that could be made with the diamonds but these are just the ones in the book that I have. The book also has string pieced Bow Ties, Spools, and other star designs. I think after I finish this quilt and when I start another string project, I will do it using squares.
Here it is after 4pm, and I have not sewn the first thing today. I have been trying to clean house and organize a little. The boys go back to school tomorrow :( I have really enjoyed having them home with me for the past few weeks. Off to fix some supper...spaghetti and garlic toast!
