All I did was print 6 identical sheets of 25 diamonds with 1.25 inch sides.
That is fast and easy. (Top Ten Tutes)
I used the No Waste Fussy Cutting method.
I rotary cut rows, and then cut the diamonds into sets as described in the video for Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses.
Each one only takes 10 minutes to sew from start to finish.
Can you believe these all came from one fabric?
Since you asked: The selvage says Belle Fleur Too by Kings Road Fabrics www.kingsroadfabrics.com
I will add the others to an album on the Inklingo FaceBook page.
This size is fast and easy to sew by hand. It’s like eating peanuts.
There is an article on QuiltingHub showing how to get perfect intersections on every star.
If you think you might want to make some of these too, the new diamonds are at a very special intro price—but for a few days only!
