Lone Star day - post 2

 I have been working on the quilt a bit since the last Lone Star day, as you can see.  They're not joined together, but I just wanted to see what they looked like all laid out together.  I have done another diamond section since I took the photo, so I just have 3 left to do.  Then will come the dreaded Y-seams.

Actually, in an effort to avoid having to do these, I had been thinking that it should be possible to add triangles of the background fabric to the diamond sections, and then all I'd have to sew would be straight seams.  I was really pleased with myself, and thought I was so clever, until I told my friend Quilthaze, who then told me that the version she's doing adds the background that way. Oh well, at least that meant that my big head could go back to its normal size!

Don't forget, you can Link up, here.
