    Great tutorial and so helpful! Thank you! I saw this pattern on Cotton and Steel and considered putting a row down the middle, like their pattern, since my quilt is not scrappy, but hand picked. What do you think?

  • I think that it will be spectacular if you do it that way. Would you repeat the four blocks plus the strip to create a repeating pattern with the diamond? I will be posting another tutorial on creating the negative space within the next week. Just have to get the fabric to make the blocks!

    I would like to try Megan’s look. Could you explain how to accomplish it using strips? I appreciate it!

  • Hi Tutti! I will definitly create a post on how to get a similar look with strips. Stay tuned!

  • You’ve got it, Julie! I’ll get one up soon!

    Thank you, Meg. I’m picking fabrics now and I’m not clear on how many fabrics are needed for the one with negative space. My quilt is not going to be scrappy, but I’m picking specific fabrics to work with. I appreciate it!

  • I guess that depends on how “scrappy” you want to make it, or how many fabrics you want to have on those strong diagonals. I personally use 3-5 fabrics if I am trying to “showcase” them. If I am trying to create a more “scrappy” look, I use a minimum of 9 different fabrics!

    Why is each block 12″ x 12″ OR 12.5″ x 12.5″? 

  • tutti

    Nevermind, I get it that’s it 12″ x 12″ finished. Thanks!

  • I see that you came back and commented that you figured it out, but also want to reply here in case other’s are reading through the comments! The block will measure 12.5″ x 12.5″ unfinished, and once it is sewn into the quilt it will be 12″ x 12″ :) Hope that helps!

  • […] that we have an idea of the Sew-Along rules, as well as a sewing timeline and the fabric requirements for a range of quilt sizes, its time to get down to business and learn how to make these blocks! If you haven’t done so […]
