April's Block :: Rolling Diamonds

April is just around the corner, so I've been mulling over what block I want you all to make for my month. I've settled on the Rolling Diamonds block by knottygnome crafts. {Here's the block tutorial.} And here's a sample quilt - isn't it fun?
For colors, take this quilt as inspiration! For backgrounds, please use low-volume or barely off-white. KONA snow would be fine, just no super-stark and shiny white please. Any mix of colors is fine for the rest of the block, which will measure 12 1/2" unfinished. My block turned out more medium that bright, but either is fine. Just go bold over pastel.
I'll basically put this same info in our flickr group. So feel free to comment or ask questions either there or in response to this post. I hope you have fun with this block and thank you in advance!


  1. Oh, this is a great block- and will make a wonderful quilt! Thanks for giving me the chance to try this one Debbie!

  2. Fun! I've known it by other names, but will be happy to give this a whirl. Looks like it will be a great quilt.
