Summer Lily 3

I have been stitching away at all the panels needed for this quilt.  At the moment I am busy stitching diamonds consisting of 8 sets of strips of different widths.

All of them started with the same 8 strips

which are then advanced by adding a lighter colour at the bottom, losing the darkest at the top 

until ending up with these 8 strips.

All of these are then again cut up into strips of different widths at set angles giving these beautiful diagonal stripes.

I started stitching these strips together only to find out that that is not as easy as it might look!  But nothing worth while happens overnight, so I'll just keep on stitching, unpicking, stitching and unpicking again until all 64 (!)  strips are done.
