Diagonal Puzzle Quilt Top

I'm a bit late (what's new?) reporting that the Diagonal Puzzle blocks I showed on Monday are stitched together into a quilt top. Here's a closer look at the wonderful fabrics Jodie put in this kit.

Although, it wasn't a lot of stitching, I didn't stitch the last seam until Wednesday. Why? One clue is in these strips for a bargello quilt hanging to the right of the Diagonal Puzzle top.

I cut the bargello strips and used them as a leader/ender project for stitching the Diagonal Puzzle together.

With the Diagonal Puzzle finished, I was ready to focus on the bargello quilt, but decided to pull my scrap drawers and cut fabric for a new leader/ender project first.

I recently borrowed Easy Quilts for Beginners and Beyond from my local library. The Cobblestones pattern inspired me to tackle turning some scraps into quilts, so I cut a bunch of 2½" squares and 2" strips.

Playing with fabric is so much fun!
