Diamond Hill Part III

Spring is here, now we are waiting for the weather to warm up.
This block, had a lot of different elements which allowed the fabrics to be used in a creative way.
The flowers with all the petals, reminded me of Daisies.
 The completed block.
 The leaves.
 These large leaves, was great to make.
The finished leaf.
Whitewashed up on the wall, my friend decided to make this for her dining room. When she saw the pattern and the kit, she knew exactly where she would put it.  These pictures were taken early evening.
The furniture have squares on them, which is repeated in the quilt. A play on squares.
 Another sign everything wants to grow?
These butternut pips, inside the unpeeled pumpkin started to sprout, so it was quite a surprise when I cut into it and started to scoop out the growing pips!


  1. What beautiful flower applique! Perfect for spring! Love the whitewashed quilt too, hung in the perfect place.

  2. Your applique block is very different. There are lots of new ideas like putting the green petal shapes on the bland sage leaves and your use of the fabric in the flowers. i love the stems with their leaves. Just very impressive.

  3. Love the way you have used your florals in the block especially your white daisies with the splashes of red, gorgeous. the whitewashed quilt looks perfect where it is hanging.
