The first four short half-diamonds. Sixteen left to go.

(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.

This is the last large diamond block. I have completed all 137 large diamond blocks for the quilt.
Wow! I've been sewing at this for just over one year and one month (and, I'm not done, yet!). There was a hiatus while I was waiting for sets to be released, and then for me to get motivated.
I have kept my resolution to stitch some each and every week this year. During this surgery recovery, when I couldn't move my sewing machine into place, I used 'stitch' liberally, and worked on my cross-stitching. :)
Well, off I go, to start cutting the pieces for the borders.

It wasn't until I was cropping this photo for publishing that I realized how lucky I was to have the red half-square diamond patterns to line up the way that they did. That was pure luck, no design on my part.
Four large diamonds remain to be completed.
