The weather down in my part of the world has been just glorious lately, which can only mean one thing - there has been a lot more English paper piecing action around here!
I had had a restful weekend and seized the good weather opportunity to crack on with my EPP diamond quilt outside. I've not worked on this project for some time, so it was nice to get back into the swing of it. Appliqueing each diamond to the backing probably takes me at least 20 minutes (yes, I'm very slow!) I generally save it for TV time in the evening but I'm usually quite tired then so I don't get much done. I always seem to be a little more motivated to sew these outside when the sun is shining :-)

I love the way it's looking, and I'm enjoying the slower pace with this quilt - watching it grow and take shape. As I sit and sew them I've thought I would even like to hand quilt it once the top is finished, I know :-/ Am I completely crazy? I've still got lots to applique so I guess time will tell...
