The Free Motion Quilting Project: Diamond in the Sky Block Pattern

Diamond in the Sky Block Pattern

We have a beautiful new block pattern for the Machine Quilting Block Party! Learn how to piece AND machine quilt this Diamond in the Sky Block.

On Monday I'll share a new piecing video guiding your through all the steps of template piecing this beautiful block. Template piecing is a fun way to construct unique shapes very accurately.

The following Monday (10-10), I'll share a machine quilting video to guide you through all the steps of machine quilting your Diamond in the Sky block. I used a combination of free motion quilting and walking foot quilting for this block that really stitches it up a notch.

Now this is the 10th block for the Machine Quilting Block Party so we only have #11 and #12 to go and our Sunshine Surprise Quilt will be complete!

But just in case you're wondering, we will be starting right over again on January 1st with a new mystery quilt and a new set of beautiful blocks to piece and quilt together. 

Our theme for next year's quilt along will be flowers and I'm really looking forward to piecing fun flower blocks with you in just a few months! I'll be working on this new project next week so be looking for new sneak peeks for next year starting soon!

Let's go quilt,
