If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Monday, Monday

Remember to pop over to Judy's for Design Wall Monday to see what other are up to!!

I've been stuck on the fractured diamond  for a week. All the possibilities were circling around in my head.
This first one was made from the above "kite" type template which is very easy to make.
This next one is my favorite because the diamonds are floating free. I made another template making the square a half inch larger which lends for a wider space at the bottom of each block. When all  blocks are sewn together, you see more of the background fabric.

Notice the square in this template and the width of the pointed wedge at the bottom of the photo. This kite is not as wide as the others. This will allow the diamond to become more distorted and will float each diamond, as well.

All three of these will go to the helping hands ladies after I've quilted them. Each is about 36 inches which is ideal for their needs.
Hopefully, the fractured diamond thingy is out of my system for awhile and thankfully a large portion of my scraps are gone.

I need to get to the point where I make all of my ideas and get them out of my system.
Yours look great.

Very pretty, Rhonda. I actually like the first one more. Very scrappy and colorful. I think it is a great way to use up more scraps.

Wow, each one is so unique....

Hi Rhonda, First I want to thank your for stopping by and your special comment about my scripture. I love the diamonds, what a great way to use scraps. I am working on a scrappy thing and will be showing it soon. Many hugs, Marie
