A few completions and a work in progress

Here are 4 more diamonds that I have completed
for my Martha Washington Flower Garden Quilt 
Here is another diamond.  I am getting so close in getting enough diamonds to finish the quilt it is exciting.  I had to take a break from hand sewing because my wrist was aching a little.  I am glad that I did because I finished 2 quilts this week. 
This is a scrappy quilt.  I found the pattern out of a Fons and Porter magazine.  I had actually started it before our move, but like so many other things, it was put away.  It was a simple quilt with lots of strips and a few squares.
Here is the picture of the Mary Engelbriet  quilt that I had promised to post. I normally don't put blue and orange together, but because the orange was in the floral fabric I decided to give it a try.  I do wish that the border was a little wider.  I may play with it and widen it.  Or I may just leave it.
