Ever since seeing this amazing quilt, I've been wanting to start one of my own. So, I quickly stitched up a sample, but I just don't like it.... Too dreary, even though it's in my beloved 30's prints. :( I think it needs to be in brighter fabrics? If I do use my 30's prints, it probably needs some more white tossed in like this version. Or, maybe I should do more of a scrappy approach instead of stitching each of the six diamonds out of the same fabric??
Now that I've tackled hexagons, I'm eager to try some English Paper Piecing with diamonds. But, this project definitely needs some tweaking.
Maybe something more like this (love it!!)??
