I Challenge You

 
It's official - I am totally hooked on English Paper Piecing and in particular the Lucy Boston Blocks
 
I am getting together a nice little stack of finished blocks.  I have just finished Block 11 and have 45 to go.


Block 9

 
Block 10


Block 11
 
I am loving using up some of my favourite scraps but what I don't love is throwing away the tiny bits that are left over - Having to be super frugal now and with no spare money to buy fabric I decided that I would make a scrappy diamonds quilt with my left over bits.


It is going to be gorgeous and will use up all of those little pieces.  I designed up a sheet of 20 diamonds for anyone to download and join me.  Simply print them onto some heavy paper or card and cut up with a rotary cutter.  What a great way to save money and make a scrappy quilt in the process.
 
Do you want to join me?  You can right click the photo above to add to your blog and can download the Diamonds sheet HERE for FREE.  There is no time limit and no rules just share your progress every now and again on your blog so we can see where you are up to.  Do you accept the challenge?  What are you waiting for ?

Thanks Fee for the free download. I cut hexagons from scraps & keep them in a box. Bonnie Hunter has some great ideas for the tiniest scraps...

They are gorgeous!! I have made a few, and am working on another, but have been so busy, haven't spent much time on it. It's my latest 'to go' project.
