New Blog Hop Alert - Be A Diamond

I'm so lucky to have many, many blogger friends who inspire me with all the things they make.
They are my "diamonds" because of all the brightness they add to my life.
This blog hop is for all of you who want to "Be A Diamond" and inspire someone else.

So...what are the rules of  the "Be A Diamond" blog hop?

The blog hop rules are simple:
Make a project with a diamond block on it (samples below.)
It can be a mug rug, pot holder, mini quilt, baby quilt, bag, etc.
Post your project on your assigned day.
Have a giveaway or don't have a giveaway. It's totally optional!
Visit everyone's blog on the list and leave a sweet comment.

Are you in?
Send me an email with the following information:

Your first name
Your email address
Your blog name
Your blog URL

I did a search in my EQ8 for diamond blocks and found several. I hadn't thought of the
square in a square being a diamond, but it is! Here's a few I found:

Jenny has this video of simple diamonds

Denise has this great tutorial of a Diamond in the Square

I hope you'll come hop with me!


  1. I love blog hops which motivate me with a deadline to finish a project I love!
    Thanks for the fun Carol!

  2. Carol,
    You must be reading my mind :-) I am playing with a design in EQ8 with diamonds and I am almost done with the final design. This blog hop is at just the right time to motivate me to finish the quilt.
    I will email you my details.

  3. I wanted to add that your graphic for the bloghop itself will make a great quilt pattern.

  4. I love Diamonds. April is my birthday month, and that is the birthstone. I am in.

  5. I need to think a bit longer about this one Carol. When is the deadline to join?

  6. So glad you included those sample blocks. I mentally see something like mariners compass when I think diamonds. Then panic. I can do squares on point even if it means turning my piece on end. I'm in. Going to send into now.

  7. Sounds like fun, Carol. It will force me to finish a diamond quilt in the works. Count me in.

  8. You know I'm in. Your button is amazing. I meant to tell you earlier...

  9. Hello! I just heard about this blog hop from a friend who said I should join. Mainly because I just inherited a huge pile of diamonds that I need to make something with! Is it too late to join?


Comments are always appreciated!
