I've been sewing along for the Diary Quilt Along, just not at the same pace as the directions!  I am now done with my small and large block 8.  I am happy to move along to block 9 and be current with the posts.  I do really love the way these blocks are coming together and am very happy to be using fabrics in reds and tans that I've been collecting for awhile.  I am thinking that maybe the blocks will be set on the diagonal and that the setting blocks may have some darker sashing.
