I am happy to say that I finished piecing my "Diamonds in the Dirt" quilt top last night.
I KNOW !
I NEVER DO THAT ANYMORE !
I just love the way that the lighter pieces 'sparkle' throughout the quilt, especially in a low light situation !
This is not my original design........I saw something like this in a quilting catalog a couple of years ago and drafted it up the best I could. I made it in a smaller size, but changed the design some this time. I can see me doing it again, and that's saying a lot for me, because I hate to make the same design more than once.
This layout, without the sashing between the browns, has given me an idea for another setting possibility.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
