Diamond Tiles

My original setting plan for Diamond Tiles was to alternate the white triangles/black sashing with black triangles/white sashing.

As soon as I saw the alternate block on the wall, I knew that this wasn’t a good idea.  The cornerstones fade into the black triangles while the overall look to the block is dull and dreary, not bright and cheery.  So all the blocks will be made with white cornerstones/black sashing.

Instead of working on one block at a time, I sewed all the uneven 9-patches together then started on the setting triangles.  All the black sashing and white triangles have been cut so all that is left is the actually sewing.

Right now I am considering black sashing, but – like always – reserve the right to change to Plan B (or C). My goal is to have all the blocks completed this weekend.

    I really like that BH block. It will go on my bucket list for now, though. I like your interpretation with the black and white — calms it down.
