Tuesday Archives #19 - Edges & English Paper Piecing

Yes, I do have an EPP project that is nagging at me all the time.  I call it the Queen of Diamonds -- queen size made up of lots of diamonds.  The hexagons have 1" sides.  I am running out of steam.  I did put some together into groups of four.  There was a color plan laid out on the board, but it has since gotten lost. Will have to do another plan when it reaches a larger stage of finish.  I have a wonderful border designed in my EQ.  I can only hope I will reach that stage.  I have just as many hexies prepared to assemble into diamonds.

You will find some older posts about this project  and  a couple tutorials for making the English Paper Piecing Diamonds here:   Queen of Diamonds

I am linking up with Val's Quilting Studio where you will find lots more archival posts being shared.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. This quilt is absolutely beautiful! I love the diamond shapes and the white between them.

  2. Pretty colors and I love the diamond assembly. Lots of time in that quilt. Who gets this one?

  3. Hi Kat, I am so happy to met you. I found your blog on the blog-list of Rebecca in AK; she and I are mutual followers. I love paper piecing. I discovered it last winter and it is such a great way to give my busy hands something to do while watch TV with my hubby in the evenings.
    I am your newest follower and I would love to invite you over to my blog to visit.
    I love your quilt . . . hexies are my favorites :)
    Your new blogging sister,
    Connie :)

  4. This is such a great quilt! I hope you find the 'steam' to finish it!

  5. Oh this is gorgeous, Kat; don't give up hope on it! Sometimes projects just feel like they'll never end...it is too lovely to let go...hugs, Julierose
