Some people want to re-create the original quilt. There are 173 different, diamond-shaped blocks in this breathtaking quilt. Working on these blocks is like opening a new box of chocolates - each one is tasty in a different way. There is weird and wonderful applique. There is curved piecing. There are miniatures for the fussiest miniaturist. There is a range of patchwork from simple to insanely intricate.

Some people like the diamond block shape and want to use it with plain fabric. Some people use the template to cut up old blocks or boring tops to recycle them into beautiful scrap quilts. Look at the photo album to see some examples. I have also developed an exciting new technique for adding corners to the diamonds to create even more design possibilities.
