Sewing a slanted diamonds quilt block can be a fun and challenging project for any quilter. Here are the steps to sew a slanted diamonds quilt block:
- Fabric for the diamonds
- Fabric for the background
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting mat
- Quilting ruler
- Sewing machine
Cut your fabric into strips that are 1 inch wider than your desired finished diamond size. For example, if you want 3-inch finished diamonds, cut 4-inch strips.
Using a quilting ruler and rotary cutter, cut the strips into diamonds. To create slanted diamonds, turn the ruler at an angle and cut the diamonds along the diagonal.
Arrange the diamonds in the pattern that you want. You can create a variety of patterns using slanted diamonds, such as chevrons or zigzags.
Once you have arranged the diamonds in the desired pattern, sew them together in rows, using a quarter-inch seam allowance. Press the seams open.
Sew the rows together to complete the slanted diamonds quilt block.
Trim the edges of the block to ensure that it is square.
Repeat these steps to create as many slanted diamonds quilt blocks as you need for your project.
- Take care when cutting the diamonds to ensure that they are all the same size.
- Press the seams open to reduce bulk in the finished quilt.
- Use a consistent seam allowance to ensure that your blocks are the correct size.
- Experiment with different color combinations to create a unique slanted diamonds quilt.
