I'm mostly satisfied with how it is turning out. And I'm unpicking less in this 2nd group of diamonds.
Pinning right where I need to stitch has helped me. It helps to stick the pin right into the existing stitching lines and checking both sides to make sure the seams are where they need to be in relationship to each other.
It's turning out a little wild. A little scrappy. I'm not sure at this point about borders yet. We'll see. But It has to be very plain.
Monday both Pam and Monica mentioned in their comments about the Bethlehem Star pattern in the Quilts Quilts Quilts book. It is a great basic quilt book that should probably be in every quilter's library. Why didn't I think of looking in my book before buying a new pattern!? I will try not to make that mistake again.
It helped me to read through the pattern though and I will be changing how I put my next group of strips together.
I do like the stars on the outside border too. Though I'm not sure I'll do that. But it was good to see how this quilt is finished off in the book. I may be surfing google looking for pictures of Bethlehem and Lone Star quilts. It is fun to see what is out there.
So now, back to sewing diamonds.
