I’ve been trying to work from my stash when I can. My Valentines is one that I choose as a project to do this. Most times it works out for me but this one got me.
I barely had enough red. That was good cause I couldn’t find another red that was close to the one I was working with. It was a very close call.
Then came my borders. Oh, the borders.
I thought for some reason that I had more of the black in my stash. Well, turns out the fabric I had put away was a very dark blue. Not the black I was using. Arrr…..
It will be good though. I’m just going to have to look around to see if I can find more or something very close.
So my project is not finished, yet. I do love this pattern and how it turned out. It is a variation of a pattern I designed over 4 yrs ago. It is paper pieced.
It is going to be a tablerunner when I find the fabric for the borders.
I adorable diamond patterns. Fabric, tiles, ceramics, whatever.
It has a bit of joker card like feel. I love that!
