Thank you to the Rose of Sharin' Quilt Shop (Danville, PA) for holding a quilt retreat weekend this weekend. Thank you Amy Sackett Goodwin for coming with me. Thank you, Mark for bringing me my missing fabric this morning so that I could cut and finish the sashing.
A special thank you to Ann Holte for designing the pattern and encouraging me to finish.
Now, to have it quilted!!

That being said, in one diamond Ann has chosen to piece a fabric that I believed to be a plaid in the original quilt. [Block N13 for the curious] Because I used a plaid, my block had 21 less pieces than Ann's block!
Ann Holte = 3340
Ida Lively = 3373

I was tired of cutting so I began to sew. Honestly, I was anxious to see
what the quilt was going to look like.
(I know from the photos approximately what it will look like, but
My fabric choices are different, and I paper-pieced some blocks without reversing them to correct for the reversing effect.)
Not everything is straight. Not everything lines up perfectly; however, thus far, I am pleased.
What say you?

(I changed the center hourglass colors from pink and green to pink and brown -- because I already had this pink/brown hourglass from making 'extra' earlier in the quilt.)
The center stripe was supposed to be white, but again, I'm using up bits that I have.

Wow! It's hard to believe. This is the last of the tall half diamonds.
This leaves only 20 short half diamonds remaining.
