Harlequin progress

Okay, so these two pictures have nothing to do with my harlequin quilt, but I had to share them. My six year old got ahold of the camera and took some self-portraits ... 40 of them to be precise. These crack me up.

Not only did he make every face he could think of, he also did an entire series of photos where he pretended to be asleep, then slowly waking up, annoyed with someone waking him, and then this final one, about which he says, "This is where I'm completely awake."

Okay, on to the quilt...

I didn't have a lot of time to sew today, but while all the kidlets napped, I did manage to get all my dark blue dinosaur diamonds sewed onto a turquoise diamond. Then I worked on pinning them into rows. So now I just need to sew my pairs together, which should go quickly since I have them all pinned, then sew the rows together and the top will be almost done. Well, actually, I still need to cut my border pieces and attach them to the rows. I just wanted to get some actual sewing done today, so I skipped the cutting for now :)

I think it's going to be a cute quilt when it's done, and it is working up really fast too, which is a bonus.
