BB-looking good-the teal sets the scraps off really nice.  I think you can use almost any color for this.  Hope so,cause the one I'm ready to put together is with bright orange - should I use black sashes and call it a Halloween quilt?  Anyway, I enjoy seeing all the ones everyone is doing, love stripping, don't we?

I started another one with teal instead of muslin, and this time I'm going to put it together in the diamond pattern with sashing.

I love it. Nicely done.

Ready for a great laugh on Friday to start off your weekend with a spash?  Here goes....here's  my picture of the Diamond Strings scrappy quilt!  Only......it's not the Diamond Strings.  Got in a hurry and grabbed the pattern off the internet to take on a road trip so I could read the instruction.  Yep, grabbed the wrong pattern.  Never figured it out until I started seeing pictures and figured out....that's not the pattern I did.  So....my Diamond Strings.

 

It actually came out great and I am very please with it.  Hope you enjoyed my senior citizen (I'm only 53) bo-bo.

Since you are soooo much older than me (I turn 53 in one week), I will forgive you your Senior Moment.  Anyway, your quilt is beautiful, and hey, it's diamonds... and strings... so it's close enough!.  What a great job!

Wow, I really like this.  I'll just add it to my list of patterns I have to try.

Love your "senior moment".  It IS diamonds and it IS strings - - as far as being a senior citizen - - - - - you are only 2 yrs older than my oldest daughter!  I love your quilting - - wish I could do half as well.  I also need to use this pattern.  I have a drawer full of 2 1/2" strips that would be perfect for it.

Penny, I'm glad you went ahead and made this one, looks good!  It's another one on my Bonnie to-do list (think all of them are there, to tell the truth!)  Love her patterns!

Thanks for all your comments on my "senior moment" quilt.  It is now sitting in my living room to be enjoyed during the next cold front.  If you need a good scrappy, this is a great one to try.

Caryl:

I haven't done a string quilt for some time, but have been working with other scrappy tops. Here's a sample:

Caryl in Buda,TX

This diamond string has been perched on my design wall for a several of weeks. But I need the wall for MQ7, so today I put the pieces of this quilt together. Thanks Caryl for the idea of a scrappy log cabin with a central focus panel!   I think it needs another border or two but at least now it is in one piece and I can have my design wall back!!
