EPP Diamond Quilt Along ROUND UP!

Our English paper pieced diamonds quilt along is at a whopping 81 members!  Thousands of diamonds have been cut, basted & pieced.  Millions of stitches have been taken!  Let's take a look at the projects as they are coming along:

Clare of Summerfete has been quilting!  Her 2" diamonds are lovely.

Carolyn has a nice big section started:

 Traci of Stolen Moments has some good tips to share:

Lesly at Pickle Dish has been piecing for almost a year..

Amanda of Home Designs by Amanda is just starting, man I love the fabric selection stage!

I love the fabric Teegzie is using:

Audrey Pawdrey has started with some pretty funky stars.

Luv2sign99 has some nice bold stars:

Nuria of La casina roja has started too, and she has the sweetest sewing box!

And here's mine.  I've been shooting for 2 stars a day since our Greek vacation started, but I don't always make it..

  1. Wow Im far behind! I am actually away from home and forgot to bring my kit with me! They are coming along so nicely!

  2. Thanks Jessica.
    Your quilt is really coming together I love how the three coloured diamonds make a 3D cube effect.

  3. add another- I just joined today! Thanks for the idea for a great summer project. - Ginger

  4. I love how different all the quilts look, especially the ones with white stars--they are surrounded with little tumbling blocks!
    *** If any one wants I have a bunch of misc diamonds cut out of vintage-style fabrics. My stars require 6 of the same color and I have a bunch leftover from each strip I've cut. I'll send them where ever if you email me you address.

  5. I found your blog through Crazy Mom Quilts (found her doing a search on quilting blogs). Want you to know that you have inspired me in a current paper pieced project that has been sitting in my closet for I don't know how long (grandmother's flower garden) and to start a star quilt as well. I am the mother of 4 with two of my children ages 2 and 3. Miss the quilting time I used to have, but this kind of project is very workable and I feel like I am accomplishing something. Waiting for my quilt patis to arrive in the mail. Will be joining the EPP group soon. So thanks for the inspiration.


  6. Wow, everyone's progress looks great! I have so much enjoyed working on mine, but I must say I'm glad it's into the home stretch!

  7. Great Work!! My project has stalled a little this week, but Saturday is a small road trip...so I hope to get more accomplished. I miss working on it, and I'm still in the early stages.

    My progress can be found at www.homedesignsbyamanda.blogspot.com
    and our Flickr group.

    Thanks Jessica for starting a group for us!

    Everyone...keep up the great work!

  8. Thanks for the inspiration and guidance on this great technique- I'm impressed that you've built such a large Flickr group! I've finished the applique process (finally!) and "just" need to finish my border and quilt and bind! :-)

  9. That is absolutely beautuful. And you are very lucky with the whole Greece thing.

  10. This looks so fantastic.
    Greetings from Germany,
