Sunday Funday

 I was trying to decide what to call this quilt and I was finishing up the orange and yellow blocks.  Framed Nine Patch isn't exactly catchy.  So combining the nine patches with the diamond corners, I'm thinking about 9 Carat Diamonds.  I also realized while tidying up, that I hadn't used any teal nine patches.  So teal will be the one last row and this quilt will be ready to sew together.
Not quite yet though.  Anna has lacrosse games at 1 and 2 and Sydney has hers at 2 and 4.  So I'll be off at LAX under an umbrella stitching away at some orange peels between games.  Hope you find some time for hand sewing on this day of rest.  Kathy is hosting her Sunday link-up if you'd like to check out other slow stitching project.

Definitely sparkly-looking blocks, so 9 Carat Diamonds is an inspired name! Glad to hear kids are going out for lacrosse. My youngest son played in HS and the game was just getting started around here. We did a lot of traveling to find teams to play!

The teal will be a perfect transition row! Excellent quilt and name!

9 Carat Diamonds is a great name! I have packed my 'busy bag' for flight time and will be making my way to the Airport today...I am off to Scotland for 10 days on a quilter's shop hop and tour of the sights.
