Happy Friday everyone! Finally got the third block finished today and I like the way it turned out.

Quilt Along (Amish Diamond Quilt block)

Can’t believe the weekend is right around the corner. The other day I posted a quilt along that we are having over at Vanessa’s and here is the second block for the quilt along. It will be interesting to see how the quilt turns out because I am just using the fabric that I have on hand.

The name of the block is called “Amish Diamond” quilt block. My seams are not perfect but had fun putting the block together. Hopefully, over time they will get better! See you next time!
