Welcome to my day to participate in the Be a Diamond Blog Hop, hosted by the amazing and talented Carol at Just Let Me Quilt blog. The goal in this hop was to create a "diamond" project.
On a recent trip to Italy I saw some gorgeous bags created in leather. One that particularly caught my eye was one with diamond shapes. If it had been a bit bigger, it would have been coming home with me. The design made me think of the upcoming hop and was thus my inspiration for the hop.
I had originally thought of doing a tote with the design, but after piecing it up I opted to create a table topper.
Be sure to visit the other bloggers this week for more diamond projects. I know that I am excited to see what is being shown.
