Here's how I make mine
Create TEMPLATE A and sew in TEMPLATE B
and then TEMPLATE B REVERSED
open the Y seam nicely
now insert TEMPLATE C
so you end up with a diamond 'unit'
here are three 'units' waiting to be sewn together
Next, create 'unit 2' which consists of TEMPLATE C & D
and then, sew the 'units' together, creating your block
As you can see, I like to use fusible for my shapes, it make assembling easier, especially as I usually put my stars together away from my sewing studio - I like to do it outside in the garden or bring it with me when we get away for weekends. It's also perfect for EPP.
and it's ideal for fussy cutting and showing off beautiful details
I'm completely in love with this quilt, it's so versatile. From fussy cutting an exquisite top to using up fabrics in a stash busting mission - it just works. And if you ever get bored, you can turn your diamonds inside out for a hexagon centre - I bet you weren't expecting that?!
