Pink and purple diamonds
The Nine patch blocks are made with 4 inch squares arranged with the darks in the corners and centres. Making blocks of 10 1/2 inches.
The alternating squares are made with 5 inch squares and 3 1/2 inch white strip using a court house set (ie White strip on the 2 opposite sides and then longer pieces on the other sides.). Again making blocks of 10 1/2 inches.
To make the 8 side triangles I cut four 6 inch squares of the final boarder fabric cross cut them on the diagonal and added 3 1/2 inch white strip making sure the piece is long enough to make the complete triangle.
To make the four corner triangles I cut one 6 1/2 inch square (of the final boarder fabric) into 4 across both diagonals and added white strip.
These side and corner triangles are actually a bit "big" so the points of the blocks float in the white
I the added the the final boarder strips cut to 4 inches.
The quilting is free motion squiggles and hearts.
