Quaker Diamonds -- It's Finished!

I finished this last evening while watching the Olympics.  Wasn't quite sure what to do with myself afterward.  I'm just thrilled with this finish, it's every bit as nice as I thought it would be. It was very easy to stitch and I couldn't seem to stop, always saying "just one more motif and then I'll quit for the evening."

I've ordered Quakers and Quilts and will stitch that as a companion piece, it uses all the same colors. Now to figure out what to stitch while waiting for that order to come in!

Gorgeous Marguerite.My LNS just called today to say my threads are in for this. Will start this in about 6 weeks. Quaker Halloween gets a start first & both it & Quaker Diamonds have to work their way into my rotation.
