Modern Block Monday - Diamond Ripples

Holy freaking WOO HOO do I love this block! I feel like the girl in this video, only I'm saying, "I like the purples, I like the layout, I like the triangles, I like the yellows, I like the black background..."

This is Lara Finlayson's Diamond Ripples from 99 Modern Blocks, compiled by Susanne Woods. Lara did her block in some beautiful modern prints with a white background. Here is mine:


I had to do some stitch ripping and not all of the seams fit perfectly, but most do so I'm pretty happy with that. Yay!

Completed blocks to date:
Next week's block is Four Acres by Solidia Hubbard.

Happy (snowy) Monday, all! At least for those in the Ottawa area. Snow?! I knew we weren't done with winter yet. ;)

  3. holy shite - the thought of all those HST's and matching corners is giving me the vapours. lol There are several reasons I became an art quilter; and not having to ever match seams like this on large scale is one of them!

    But your block is BEE-YOOOOOO-TI-FULLLLLL!
