This week I’m bringing back an old favorite of mine and adding it to my Blocks 2 Quilt series. The Diamond Sky quilt block made its debut in the Starry Night quilt along back in 2016.
This block was always my favorite of the quilt along. I had dreams of making them in batches for a complete quilt top.
Diamond Sky Quilt Block
The Diamond Sky quilt block is available in two finished sizes that measure:
- 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm)
- 12″ x 12″ (33 x 33 cm)
Materials & Supplies:
- Assorted Scraps: Navy, Turquoise, Purple and White Prints
- Cutting mat/ Rotary cutter/ Quilt ruler
- Heat erasing marking tool
- Spray starch
- Flatter Spray
- Sewing Machine
To keep things simple and avoid cutting funky angles, I worked out the math for a simple patchwork construction. To help with assembly, I made this quick video.
This simple block requires no special tools or templates, and is quick to make. One look at my assembly video above and you can see that it is perfect for every skill level.
The Diamond Sky quilt pattern is available for free until August 13, 2020, after that it will be available for purchase in the shop. Just click the button below, add the pattern to your cart and follow the prompts for check out.
For those of you wondering, I made the block in completely different colors for the Starry Night quilt along. You can see it and find more details here.
