Of course you do. I know you've been dying to know how to make one yourself. Well, my friend, that day is today. My fellow Quilted Fish Design Team members and I are revealing our tutorials today. Woo-hoo!! The pattern is made by one simple block being turned different ways. So let's get started.
16 4" squares pattern
16 4" squares solid
36 1.75" squares pattern
36 1.75" squares solid
Fabric for binding, about 80"
Pair up a 4" pattern square with a 4" solid square. We're going to make Half Square Triangles, or HSTs.
Sew the squares together, 6 rows of 6. In the odd rows, alternate the small solid corner first on the bottom right, then on the bottom left. In the even rows, alternate the solid square first on the top right, then on the top left. That will create the diamond patterns. Quilt as desired. I chose to emphasize the diamonds by quilting concentric squares within the patterns, and leaving the pink solid fabric plain.
Enjoy! Now, go check out the other tutorials today:
And don't forget to pick up some Madhuri while you're out fabric shopping. Or while fabric shopping in your pjs. Either way, go get some!
