Diamond Construction

When I've sewn the Diamonds quilts together I've sewn the blogs into diagonal rows, but they are awkward to work with.

My design wall isn't quite big enough for the side edges, so I laid them out on the floor.

This gave me the idea of assembling a large central diamond, and then sewing the corner sections around it.

These six rows will form the center of the big diamond once I sew them together. It isn't a typical square in square, so it's a bit finicky, but I think it'll be a bit easier to sew together this way.

Yeah, whenever I try to stitch my blogs together, I find they shred into teeny tiny urls. (Can you hear my kids moaning? “Mommmmm. It was just a typo.”)
