|the diamonds before sewing together|
To be honest it's not the easiest color to use in May although my birthday is this month, and the birthstone is emerald.
I adore emeralds.
The silly thing is, I pulled out two scrap bins of green. I thought, hmph, where are all the really small pieces I use for these diamonds??? I started piecing smaller strips then "found" a bin of smaller green scraps all by itself.
OMG Really? I might have too many green scraps but who gets the ax? Who is sent off the island? This shot shows you the general size of the nine diamonds when sewn together.
This picture shows you the 5 colors so far...
