Since it is Kristy's tutorial I won't go into the process but encourage you to check out her tutorial HERE. You will notice my centers are a little different as I didn't add the third color, I wanted my diamonds to appear see through so I used the background fabric. By the way these are all Island Batiks that were provided to me for my monthly challenges but I happened to have these leftover from one of the blog hops.
If one had the half rectangle BlocLoc ruler it would be easy to trim these. I didn't have the large one but I did have the small one and I figured out a way to work with that. Here are a couple of pic's showing my method.
You can see how I laid my small HRT Bloc Loc ruler in one corner and trimmed both edges of this one corner.
From there I could take a regular ruler and measure my 6.5" x 3.5" and trim up the rest of it. It's always fun to figure out a way to work with what you have.
Ahh the perfect backing was just lingering in my stash!
I hope I have inspired you just a little today. And do remember to check out all the other participants and see what diamonds they have in store for you today. Thank you Carol for hosting this fun blog hop.
