OK.......so I drank the Kool-Aid!! But then again I'm ALWAYS drinking others Kool-Aid from out there in quilty blog land. Especially when it's as good as this!!
I first ran across SUJATA'S kool-aid stand, oh yes, I drank several glasses. Enough for me to get the instructions on this amazing quilt. Sujata did an outstanding job on figuring out all the P's and Q's of this design and shares a fabulous "how-to". I did several sample diamonds trying to get just the right background color. I did one in red....nope, I didn't like that....I had some sort of ugly brown in my stash and thought that would work.....but.....it was pretty gaggy! Nothing spoke to me until I discovered this greenish/grayish color. Yes, at last I could get started.
But before I got started I had to go over and see the kool-aid BARBARA was serving up with this particular design. Of course, Barbara always has the BEST kool-aid on all those oldies but goody vintage quilts and patterns and designs. I JUST LOVE HER BLOG!!! You always come away from her kool-aid stand feeling like you've just drank champagne instead of kool-aid!
Anyone wanting to try this can get the best instructions from both blogs, just click on either or
both of their names above.
I have done about 65 diamonds and have prepped papers for about 70 more.....WOO HOO!! I love how mine is turning out!!!!
Thanks ladies for sharing your kool-aid!!!!
