Sunday sketch #47

My designs are going through a bit of a diamond phase at the moment.

I’ve never sewn with diamond shapes before – I guess they must be similar to triangles in how they need to be aligned just right when sewing in rows? I should try them and see. This design could be made with triangles instead of diamonds, but the former would introduce loads of unnecessary seams.

I love the simplicity of this design. Just three or four colours – one for the background and a few for the columns of diamonds – would make a striking quilt.
