Crossroads Quilt Along: Diamond Block

Welcome back to the Crossroads Quilt-along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop in benefit of March of Dimes! The second block has just been revealed on the Fat Quarter Shop blog, and it's the Diamond block. You can download the pattern here.

For my diamond blocks I picked floral fabrics by one of my all time favourite designers, and a much revered fellow Riley Blake fabric designer. I am talking about the queen bee herself of course, Lori Holt, of Bee In My Bonnet. I have mixed prints from three of her fabric collections in my blocks.

I would lie if I said I didn't find these blocks a little challenging. I had to rip and resew several seams to get those points lined up - it's a pretty unforgiving design so my advice is to take extra care when cutting and sewing.

Hope you like my Diamond blocks! If you would like more inspiration check out the blogs / Instagram feeds of all the other designers participating in this quilt along!
