Seven Diamonds - progress 2/9/11

Here's the group together so far:

Seven Diamonds


There will be sashing (double pink) and cornerstones (poison green) in between the blocks.

These were drafted as straight copies of the block. Unfortunately, because they are straight drafts, when I paper piece them, the blocks end up backwards. Yes, yes, I *could* redraft, or I could trace the pattern onto the reverse of the paper -- but that is a LOT of work!

To date, there have been five sets published. Each set either has 10 or 11 diamonds. [Odd numbered sets 1, 3, 5, etc. have 11 blocks; while even numbered sets have 10 blocks.]





The entire quilt is comprised of:

  • 137 full diamond blocks
  • 20 short half-diamond blocks (top/bottom)
  • 12 long half-diamond blocks (left/right)
  • 172 corner stone diamonds
  • 308 sashing parallelograms

Left to complete:
  • 130 full diamond blocks
  • 20 short half-diamond blocks (top/bottom)
  • 12 long half-diamond blocks (left/right)
  • 172 corner stone diamonds
  • 308 sashing parallelograms
