A new project

I love doing stitchery but every now and again I feel like a change, so over easter and in between finishing a few projects, I started a new one. This is block one of 16 and its English paper piecing. I have actuallly tacked around 70 diamond shapes, now I can start making a few flowers.I wanted to share with you a gift I received from chookyblue in our Friends in Stitching swap, this is a Leanne Beasley project that has been stitched and put on canvas, its so pretty. I'm lucky to receive such beautiful things.

Hi, Just love your paper pieced diamond flowers - they look great! Is the design a BOM, or something you are creating? I also love your half square triangle quilt. I am really tempted to try a HST quilt myself. I am very much a beginner with the sewing machine!! Robyn from Daisy Quilts kindly sent me a tutorial on HST and I am very tempted to try some. After seeing your quilt I might just start - Kind regards to you and thanks for sharing - Natalie, Valley Farm W.A.
