I was looking through Hawthorne Threads Blog the other day when I saw this post. I saw the Totem Quilt and was intrigued. Diamonds. Paper Piecing. Must try! The pattern is available through Cloud 9 Fabrics.
I pulled out my scraps, printed the patten and went to work! and...I liked it!
So, it inspired me. I decided to enlarge it. Testing. Testing. Testing.
And it worked! I cannot lie. I like the black and white! Perhaps that will be another project for another day!
I have been 'sitting' on a stash of Briar Rose for months and months. Always eyeing it, touching it and then putting it back on the shelf. Well...heck with that! I bit the bullet and decided Briar Rose and paper piecing diamonds! Honestly, its only fabric!
I have made six so far. (in the bigger diamond) My plans are still sketchy. But I do know it will all come together in the end! I'm just happy I have finally given in and decided this was the Briar Rose project I have been waiting my whole life for! (dramatic)
I adore this print! So adorable it makes me giggle! I have many more diamonds to make. It could take a while. But I have time! I'll share my progress!
ANYTHING GOES Monday
