More 60˚ Diamonds with Baby Blocks
Looking back at my old art files from the late 1990s when I was an editor with Quilt Magazine, I see that when I discovered I could rotary cut diamonds and not use templates, I really took off with my quilt designs. Last week I shared several quilts using 45 degree diamonds; today I'll share some using 60 degree. Some you've seen before.
Here's some art from 1997. This is the traditional way this pattern was created.
And a beautiful, vintage quilt done in velvets and silks.

|My Diamonds Have the Blues: 60" x 60"|
I cut so many diamonds I had enough for another quilt. It's included as a bonus pattern with the blue one. I call it Floating Diamonds. These are sewn in horizontal rows, not diagonal rows. Again, a trick with triangles!
