I added a 2.5-inch border using Kona Orange and Regal. It was easy to cut the diamonds using my Sidekick ruler.
A bonus of using the Sidekick ruler is that the pieces fit together for better piecing.
My block now measures 14.5 inches. My goal is that each round will be 2.5 inches unfinished. We'll see if I can continue it with next week's theme. I asked my friend Dena (aka my quilt consultant) for some advice on whether to continue with the navy background for all the rounds. Stay tuned to see how her advice plays out.
