I really like the Stay at Home Round Robin project, and want to thank all the quilters who sponsor it for the fun and inspiration! (More info about it here) It makes Monday mornings exciting, because that's the day the new prompt for the next border is out. This week it is diamonds. After reading a few of the blog posts about how diamond blocks can be made, I gave it a try!
Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

I Like Thursday #271 and SAHRR Update
These were made using Wendy's technique. Wanting to keep mine small, I started with two inch squares and added colorful corners, then sewed all four corners together. They're not too bad! I think I got better with these as I went along.
These measure 3.5 inches square, but I trimmed them to 3 inches before sewing them into the quilt. I used them as cornerstones and added strips of a dark red in this pretty floral fabric line to complete the round.
Linking this up to The Darling Dogwood.
It is Thursday and so also time for my weekly "I Like Thursday" post that is shared over at Not Afraid of Color.
This week I enjoyed playing "Musical Bingo" over where my mom lives. It's a typical bingo game except with song titles instead of letters and numbers. The gal who runs the game plays a song excerpt and everyone gets to guess the title. Of course, it's fun to sing along, too!
I did some baking this week! I don't bake very often anymore, but this week a loaf of some kind of quick bread sounded good. I had been saving blueberries that were softer than I like on my cereal, so this seemed like a good way to use them up. This recipe for Blueberry Bread turned out really good!
We decided to join Amazon Prime this year, and one of the perks is more streaming TV shows to watch in the evenings. I noticed that we could watch "Grantchester" from the beginning of the first season, so we've been doing that and enjoying it this week. Just like reading a book series from the beginning, I like watching a TV series from the beginning!
Have a happy Thursday!
