I Have a New Love
There are about 320 +/- of the smallest diamond units so if you look at it that way it's not so bad. Maybe it's time to quit my day job. Maybe if I had only one meal a day and chained myself to a chair.
When I first started blogging I posted about this beautiful Martha Washington's Flower Garden quilt made in the early 1800s, but I think that this new one might just have moved up to the front of the line - I don't even know the name of it.
But there's also this incredible hexie masterpiece from Brigitte Giblin that I found on Lisa's Precious Time blog, along with a few others. The scale is considerably different but it is equally stunning and I have a pile of large florals that would work perfectly in those centre panels. I just love the little white diamonds that run throughout. Thanks so much Lisa for letting me use your photo so that I can share the love....M
