Description

   This is just a little project that came about when the fabrics wound up stacked together somehow, and I just had to see what I could piece that would combine all of the dark browns with the bright near-solids. 

The diamonds were kindof fun to do....... so many possibilities. 

It is still a work in progress.  The modern flowers are basted on, but not appliqued.  I may choose to quilt them onto the surface as I quilt the rest of it, rather than separately applique them. 

On a personal note, the name stems from my nearly 37 years of marriage to one terrific guy.  Seeing the addition of the flowers on top of the diamonds, the name just suggested itself !

This just stands out. I particularly like the dark browns. The diamonds act like a solid and make a sparkly background for the more brilliant colors. Really nice.
