I've quilted all the diamonds. This is the design in the corner diamonds, figure 8s; I'm going to add a little more quilting to make the border around the centre diamond pop. The other diamonds (except for the one in the centre) all have swirls in the middle diamond . The diamond in the centre has a feather.
This is how I'm quilting the hexagons that fill in the spaces on the sides and in the corners.
I had previously shown you a sneak peak of a quilt that I made. There is a little more quilting to go and then it will be done. I'll finish the last little bits when Butterscotch Ripple is done. I call this one Brick Bungalow.
The quilt was based upon an antique quilt. that was made by Amy McCoun Carpenter around 1845.
Brick Wall and LeMoyne Stars, Amy McCoun Carpenter c1845
The border of the original was made up of LeMoyne stars and each star was made from a single fabric.

And this is the corner of Brick Bungalow. It isn't identical to Brick Wall but this version fits well and it is much easier to make!
There will be a pattern coming for this quilt in the near future so do stay tuned!
The obedient plants are just starting to bloom. I think they are kind of interesting!

Until I post again, happy sewing (I could use some of that)!
