Dryer Diamond Strings

This is my last finish for this weekend.

These were my dryer sheet string blocks.

I don't like the border on this one. The border in itself is fine, it just doesn't work on this quilt. However, it is now a finished flimsy ready for quilting, and I am sure it will find a home where it will be loved just the same. :) Not every idea in my head turns out like I think it will!

  5. I really like your border, think it frames the quilt nicely. Makes the quilt have dimension especially using the black against that green...
    great choice!
    thanks for sharing the picture....

  6. I love how the dryer sheets give you rectangluar blocks instead fo the more common squares. And in my opnion look great with the green border -- it picks up the light springy colours in the blocks and highlights them...

  9. I love the strings made up that way, I never thought to make them up like diamonds. The border is fabulous. You must be just thrilled with it Norma!

  12. Norma, I'm not an expert, but I think the green border is great! I think it really makes the blocks pop. I don't know whether you didn't like the color or the design of the border, but I think both are nice.

  13. Look at you go, girl! I like the border though---not sure what you wanted it to look like but it looks fine! that black breaks up the green nicely and really frames it well.

    Good job with the swirls on the Building Blocks. I am going to print off the post with the enlarging instructions and put it with the ones I printed off. THX!

  14. Looks good from here!
    I like the black-sashings.

    The Ladybug quilt is really cute too. I have a couple of Debbie Mumm projects I want to do now!

  15. Actually, I quite like the border. It gives the whole quilt a stained glass feeling.

  16. Your color catcher strings and dryer diamond strings turned out great!!! I'm still collecting the dryer sheets but haven't started piecing on the them yet.

  18. I would say your border slightly overpowers the diamonds-is that what seems off to you? still, a wonderful quilt and done is great! I liked the diamond wall hanging I did-a fun shape to work with

  19. I think of stained glass when I see your quilt. I really like it.

  20. I see ... a stained glass window ... with the wooden frame painted green. It's a great quilt!
