Here’s a close up of my diamond-pieced forest floor. Each diamond measures 11″ lengthwise and 7″ from top to bottom. I was amazed at how quickly it sewed together; it took me about 2 days to stitch the entire quilt top.
I spent a lot of time on the river today. Nothing is sewn down yet, but I made a lot of important decisions and have everything in place to start to fuse and stitch. I like to think about it for a while and walk into the room a few times and see it with fresh eyes before making the final commitment. Oh, I got the footboard out of storage a couple of weeks ago. It’s so beautiful and nice to have around.
