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 20, 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.

I AM SO INTERESTED TO LEARN MORE OF QUILTING, PROVIDE MORE TUTORIAL LESSONS ON MY EMAIL
Thank you for your interest. These patterns are available by download. Just head to the shop and select the item you are looking for. Complete the checkout and the instructions will be emailed to your inbox.
I thought some were giving as a free pattern. As a beginner, I am nervous about sewing a 1/4″ straight line.
No need to be nervous. Sewing is a learned skill and practice really helps. Yes, many of my blocks are offered free the first week of release. After that, they are for sale in my shop. It is best to sign up for my newsletter. This way, you will be notified each time a new block is published.
