6 Point Diamond Paper Piecing

Remember THIS project?

Well it's that time of year when I do a lot of handwork. {Sunday drives, Camping, Visiting Family, Trips to the Coast, sitting on the back porch basking in the sun and warmth}

Since I last blogged about this paper piecing project in April.... I got myself a bit organized!
All Ready to Go n Sew!


This little box is the perfect size to hold: my little polka dot scissors and cute little needle holder ring that my friend Nanette made me... Fabric cut and ready to sew around the paper pieces...
Polka Dot Scissors

A place for my fun paper clips and a spool of thread.... And a section for paper pieces waiting to be covered...
Tools

There are separate compartments {by color} for finished diamonds too!
Ready to Sew


We got to spend some time at the coast this past week... There was a bit of rain while we were there, so I got to spend a bit of time adding to my quilt! Here is my progress so far...

Hand Piecing a Quilt

This little "fishing tackle box" was perfect for getting organized. I cleaned it up and refilled it when I got home last night.... Now it's all ready to go with me on our next trip!
Getting Organized

I am loving working on this project. I LOVE handwork. I love stars in quilts. I LOVE bright colors and white. I LOVE that it will be completely hand sewn by me....

Ok, I'm having box envy! LOL! I love the idea of that needle ring. I'm so making myself one. Love the diamond scrappy-love quilt! Love it!!!!

I love little organizing things.

Amber said...

Oh man, Jodi! I have started my own quilt with these diamonds the other day and now I'm wondering if I should have done mine like yours!!! I like that your white is on your stars. I was going to do my stars bright and the other parts in my background fabric. You have made me rethink that. I like that yours kind of look like little circles around your stars!!! It looks great! Way to be organized and get so much done!

Hope you're well!
Amber

Bari Jo said...

Love your stars! And what a great idea! I use a fishing tackle box like yours for a jewelry box--never thought about it for my quilt stuff!
