Are you taking part in the String Along hosted by Lori at Humble Quilts? I’m making ten of these diamonds a month out of the scraps left of my dad’s shirts. While visiting Daughter #3 recently, I found the perfect red for the alternate diamonds. My dad’s shirts were mostly thin, poly/cotton, button downs so […]
