As some would say,  a girl's best friend.
There example was done in beautiful  
So rich and gorgeous.
 
I chose a slightly different color scheme.
 
 
 I wasn't quite sure what I had planned for
this mini until I put pieced together
the block.
It was a cinch.

Made piecing the diamond perfection.
I can see using this tool in many other projects
 
 
 
After piecing the diamond,
I fondly recalled a lullaby that
I would sing my babies.



I am sure most of
you can figure out the song.


 
A Mocking Bird



A Looking Glass
 
 

 
and of course the Billy Goat
or as my husband says "The Old Goat".
 

 
 
It is my Hush Little Baby quilt
with a Brilliant Cut Diamond Ring block
from the Fat Quarter Shop.

The shine for the berry, diamond, mirror and glasses was added by using
iCraft® DECO FOIL™  which you can find here.
