April's One Block Wonder BOM....Diamond Path

Finishing up with March:

 I'll announce last months winners in a separate post this time, as I have the link running until later today!
So you may still have enough time to link your block if you got one sewed together.....

Great prizes are being sponsored by 

April's block is finally here.....Diamond Path.....

I fell in love with this one....hope you feel the same way. It's another easy sew and jelly roll friendly ...if you have one laying around that you have been wanting to use!!
But I have to be honest...insert goofy grin here...I was having so much fun with this one, I actually forgot to take pictures  as I was making the blocks/quilt!! Totally "Loopy" of me! And this quilt is totally done...quilted and bound (pictures to come)!!!
So I had to cut out and make an extra lone block, just for the tutorial...oops.

This months sample is sewn in P&B Textiles Urban Scandinavian, with Bella Suede

Just love blue and white together and the pop of red just works so well....but it could have been yellow, orange or any other colour.....

I can't wait to see how you interpret this month's block, or maybe you will be inspired by the blue and white......?

Before I get to the tutorial though,  let's talk about this month's sponsors, and the fun prizes being offered for our next link up party!!!

Rita from

is sponsoring a $30 Gift Certificate 

as well as the on going discount you can use for the whole year of our BOM


is sponsoring a FQ Bundle of Urban Scandinavian

Another great month with awesome sewing rewards!!

What you will need: 8 different prints/fabrics, plus your accent and your background fabrics

Cut on your drawn line or down the centre to separate into 2


and press open

Now lay out your pieces and start construction: (I am so sorry about these pictures, should have checked them, and it's too late now...)

In chain piecing fashion I worked across the block joining the prints to the BG. Pressed the seams. There are only a few seams that actually line up in this block and they only happen when putting blocks together, so sewers choice on how you want to press your seams.

When your column are made, you can then start joining them together.

And that's it...your first block is together. It is such a fast block.

What happens when you put 4 blocks together you ask.....
I heard you.... ;)

Here's what your mini could look like.....

or maybe this

or maybe even like this....

Have fun 
and look for the next post with our March winners in it!!!

Cricut Gives Your Ultimate Cutting Precision


  1. Thanks for the April block. I have my colour scheme chosen ready to put it together tomorrow.

  2. Another attractive block, Sandy! So creative and so many ways to set it. I think I'm back to making a table topper with this one, thanks Sandy!

  3. It would be nice to know how much of each fabric you would need to complete a nice lap or full size quilt. How much of each of the 8 prints and the back ground fabric?

    1. Hi Mary, Sandy generously provides the tutorial for 1 block free here on her blog. The full pattern including fabric requirements are available for a small fee on her Craftsy site:

  4. Looks lovely in blue and white, I would be tempted to chain piece 9" and 6.5" blocks for the 4 middle sections. I have a jelly roll so I might give this a go!

  6. Another superb design. I have to look in my strip bin and find some that will suit.Love your final quilt settings.

  7. Really nice in light blue. I can't 24 blocks above for the pictured finished one. Am I right? tia
