Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds....top done





I had a few ....mishaps....as you can see. That's what I get for trying to get done in a hurry. Nothing to keep your ego in check like a major mess up.
I did alot of reading on working with diamonds, and the information all pointed to one secret ingredient: starch! I must have used a whole can of heavy starch on this top.




I was going to use fusible, black bias tape in between the diamonds, to give it a stained glass look. I think I'm going to skip that unless you all tell me otherwise. The borders will be pieced with the scraps from the diamonds. I certainly have enough of those.

Hey looks very good! I've never done a solid diamond thing like that, so I'm impressed.

I don't think it needs the bias tape unless you really like headaches! LOL!

Looks super!
