English Paper Pieced Diamonds

I recently saw this post on Crazy Mom Quilts, and I knew it would be the perfect summer project for me.  In a couple of weeks, I am traveling to see my in-laws and my parents in Mobile, Al. and in Destin, Fl.  I needed some type of project that would travel easily and would allow me to work on a sewing project while I was there.  I ordered some quilt patis and got started!

I am not very far yet, but that is okay! This will be a great project to take along to the park or for car rides, and I mainly plan on working on it when I am unable to pull my sewing machine out.

Life Under Quilts has started a Quilt-a-long for this type of project, and if you click on the link above, it will take you to the flickr group.  She also has a great youtube video for how to put these together if you would like to start one too!
