Decisions made - August on the way!!!

 
Well I bit the bullet and there is no turning back now. I was leaning toward orange so followed my heart!!
 
Before I sewed it altogether.
 
 
All of the diamonds cut out ready to be basted and sewn on.
 
 
Adding the peeper, borders and diamonds has changed the look of the middle block completely.
 
 
It all sits well with me now so I am a happy sewer!! I have started cutting the 2" blocks for the next border - fun time starts tomorrow sewing them together.
 
Happy Stitching Everyone!!!
