More forgotten treasures were rescued from the magic drawer. Treasures which revealed I may have had a slight obsession with piecing diamonds for quite some time.
Seems I wasn’t content to have made my Quilted Diamonds top.
As I fished out bag after bag of pieced diamonds from the drawer I was astounded at just how many others I had made. First up was a set of pink and white diamonds. I had completely forgotten about these ones.
Then a set of purple and white ones.
Then another set of a different pink with white.
Then a few done in ’30s prints.
Some in batiks.
Some done in greens and pinks.
Then a large group done in my favourite shabby chic fabrics.
And yet more of the shabby chic ones.
Each one of the pieced diamonds in all these pictures is this size. And this one is one of my favourites of them all. I loved putting together this one with its tiny triangles. I knew I had made a lot of pieced diamonds, but had absolutely no idea there were this many. Now that they have been rescued from the magic drawers, I am determined to figure out a setting for each group and turn them into a finished project. They’ve languished in those bags in the drawers for far too long.
Baxter was busy investigating the magic drawers too.
He was posing for the camera yesterday afternoon.
