Turquoise Diamonds

Turquoise with lime diamonds for this month's color at RSC. She is calling the color aquamarine but I just did turquoise since it's one of my faves at the moment.

I have been so sick, just some kind of cold but it sapped all my energy.
I could barely sit and read on the porch in the lovely weather much less sew.
Today I pulled myself together and mindfully sewed tiny pieces that should probably have been thrown away!
I haven't sewn the little diamonds together yet... that will have to wait until the brain is functional again. When the 9 small diamonds are sewn together it makes a diamond about 25" tall by 15" wide.
Don't know how I'll place them yet since there will be 12 colors
And I might just add in some black and white ones.
Linking to some mighty parties on  my links page, including these:

  7. If you do the star pattern and add another round that will be 12 colours. Then add a neutral to square it off. It will look amazing. What size diamonds are they. I like this idea...

  12. Wow, pretty impressive for not being fully functional. I wouldn't attempt diamonds under those conditions much less those pieced with teeny tiny scraps!

  14. Hope you will feel better soon. Nothing worse than a summer cold. The scraps of lime make it look faceted, like a diamond giving off sparks of light. The best one so far.

  21. Your diamonds look so good, especially with all those tiny pieces of scrap fabric. I have yet to figure out how to sew together diamond shapes - they never work out right. Hope you are over your cold soon; sometimes it's the littlest thing that throws us off balance!
