Question Tuesday

It's a little hard to tell in this photo, because my design wall isn't quite big enough, but I now have all 42 full diamonds complete. And this was taken before I finished another half diamond and got a good start on another, leaving just 1.5 more half diamonds to finish. wootwoot.


The question for y'all today is...
I started this next half diamond yesterday and showed it to Val at work. We both really like the fussy cut green fabric (yes, it's one striped fabric) and mused that I could make this into a full diamond and replace one of the diamonds I already completed to show off the fussy cutting.


What do you think? Should I make this into a full diamond, make another half diamond and then have an extra full diamond or just go with the original plan and be done sooner rather than later?

TIA!

I think your quilt looks beautiful just the way it is although that is a neat block! Hehe....how about making another quilt!
Thanks for sharing.

YOur quilt is amazing the way it is! But that block is super cool...either decision is a good one!

I say go for it. That you're considering it tells me you already think it's worth the effort. This is too beautiful a piece to not just go for it!! You could put it in the place of the pink/burgundy/green block you've got in the bottom-off-center-right of the photo! :)

If your even considering doing it. Then do it, otherwise later when the quilt is finished, you will wished you had done it, and it will be too late by then to change your mind.

Wow, you really got a lot done! That is going to be one fantastic quilt when you are done. I really like that last one, it would look great as a diamond. I agree with Ann Marie, if you considered it, you'll wish later you would have done it. But seriously either way it's an amazing quilt. Love watching the progress.

I love your little half block.
The green stripe is so nice...
I will leave the choice up to you about whether you make a new block.

Lauren Sgranfetto said...

I say do it! You've put so much effort into it already, the stripes would add a unique touch to an already beautiful quilt.
Bottom line is though, it's your quilt so do what you want !

I agree that you should make this into a full diamond.

and how gorgeous is that. I'd make a small quilt with this half block.

Loe the details of this newest diamond component, my idea is to use it somehow for the label instead of redoing your quilt top. It is gorgeous, nicely done.

I had never seen this pattern before and just got a quilt my grandmother had made, where did you get your pattern?
