Weekender Diamond for Jaurez

Date:  October 2008

Size:  Twin-ish

Inspiration:  An orphanage in a garbage dump in Jaurez, Mexico.

Special Fabrics:  A friend donated 4" squares - fabric samples from the Weekender clothing line.  Another friend gave me the back and the fill.

Lessons Learned:  Stretchy fabric is evil.  Patience is necessary.

When my friend gave me a small bag of scraps, it didn't occur to me that it would make four tops!  This is the first of those.

Here's a "now I can laugh" moment.  After I finished wrestling with all four tops, a friend told me it would have been easier using a ball tip needle  *face palm*
