I sewed the diamond border onto the bottom of my GH quilt, pieced another diamond border ready to go on the side....what now, I'm thinking!
OMG, I must have spent a couple of hours fussing about, losing patience, when the door bell rang.
Dear friends popped in unexpectedly...what a lovely surprise...we talked, had coffee, then I was asked to show them my GH quilt.
I said..."I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I just can't work this out"...we played around with ideas, try this, try that... maybe this will work better was the conversation for a while.
Then I showed them the diamonds on my Spring Harvest quilt, "this is what I want to do" said I.....duh!
There's your answer said my friend....you started joining the row of diamonds at the top point to the edge of the quilt, instead of the side point...
Can you believe that, I looked at those diamonds so many times, measuring and getting angles....couldn't see the wood for the trees, or vice-versa!
Look, how good is this now....have you done that, the solution is staring you right in the face, but you don't see it....
Saved by the bell.....thank you so much Caroline..lovely to see you both, so glad I was home....♥
