Diamond Flare :: October + November

It had been too long. Focusing on the big project, I had let making my blocks for the guild BOM #SeattleMQGBOM2023 go, and was behind a couple of months. I finally took some time to get caught up.

First the set of blocks for October....

and then the ones for November.

Since these were the last of the blocks, I tried to lay everything out on the floor to get an idea of the final design, but there just wasn't room. And of course, I now have three sets of blocks in addition to the big center section, but I'm not sure how they should be arranged. So I'll put them all away for now and wait for the big layout reveal next month. At least all the building blocks are done!


  1. Congratulations on getting all the blocks complete and I look forward to seeing how it all comes together.

  2. Catching up is a good thing. Rotating projects is also good, I think it helps the creative juices flow to sometimes set a project aside and let it 'simmer.'
    Of course then the 'getting behind' thing happens.
    Great piecing and your new panel finish looks great.

  3. With your big commission it sounds very "reasonable" this one had to wait. But I bet it was also a great change in scenery and now you are proud that you are caught up - and excited for the final reveal. xo
