Would you believe that are officially at the halfway point! So, if you have been stitching along, you should have completed 5 blocks by now. That’s a pretty sweet stack if you ask me.

It's time for the next block in the Starry Night Quilt Sampler - the Diamond Sky Quilt Block. Come join the fun and Increase your skill set with a block of the Month sewing series on The Sewing Loft. By far and away, the Diamond Sky is my favorite block of the series! Something about the way things fit together so perfectly just make me smile and that fabric… what I can say, delish!

Diamond Sky Quilt Block

 

You will need to make 1 of these 12″ finished blocks for the Starry Night Sampler quilt layout.

A few quick tips-

We are working with angles so cutting counts on this block. Take your time during the prep stage. A quilting ruler with 45° like this one will make easy work of the sub cutting process.

Use the lines on your quilting ruler to make those 45˚ angles perfect every time!

Then use it again to square your blocks by aligning the line along the center seam of block.

We are working with angles so cutting counts on this block. Take your time during the prep stage.

It’s best to work this main block as 4 smaller blocks. This assembly style sewing will reduce your sew time by half.

Assembly line sewing will help reduce your make time.

Be sure to nest your seams to prevent bulk and issues during the quilting process.

Block 6 Diamond Sky has been released. Here are easy quilting tips to help you with each block of the Starry Night Quilt Sampler.
