It has been slow goin, but I have made some progress. My inspiration comes from a pattern called Diamond Rings. However, the layout in the following picture may be all I use in my quilt top. I am thinking of doing the remainder in solids for a very minimal effect. I also thought about having the final layout flipped, meaning this section of the quilt top would flow top to bottom instead of side to side (which is how it appears on my sewing table).
Hopefully sometime soon I'll have an end result. BTW Happy 2014
