The Storm at Sea Continues

Well, I haven't finished all of the 72 diamond blocks, but I've begun assembling the quilt top with what I have done. 
I was losing interest in this quilt with the monotony of the blocks, so I went ahead and began piecing the top together despite not having all of the diamonds done.  I'm so glad I did!  Seeing this begin to take shape has really motivated me to keep moving and try and finish up. 

The stars you see below the Storm at Sea are some UFO blocks that I was thinking of turning into a baby quilt.  I know of at least 11 people that are having babies in the next 6 months, so I'm sure I'll be making some baby quilts in the near future.  These stars were supposed to be part of a larger mystery quilt, but I hated the final quilt, so I've decided to turn the random blocks into smaller quilts instead of one large one.
