HST Challenge - Block 15 - Fractured Diamond

Posted by Liz K. on 5/23/2015
3 rows done!!!!

For those who may be joining us tardy (don't worry, easy to catch up!):

Block 15, Fractured Diamond

This one's a classic, but I can't find its "real" name! If you know it, please leave it in the comments!

First, as always, you're going to need to make your 16 HSTs (see tutorial link above). Here's the layout of the block:

This week, you just need to make 8 of one 2-block segment:

Make 8

Your quarter block is just two of those segments, one on top of the other:

Make 4 of this block 

Now lay out your 4 blocks into the Fractured Diamond layout:

You'll have a diamond in the center!

Now join them together into your finished block!

And here're my 15 blocks so far on my "design wall"!

If you don't have a design wall, but you do have a 60" x 72" space on your wall, this thing (it's a Fons & Porter felt design wall that just hangs on any wall) is totally awesome! 

Awaiting pictures of your block at [email protected]!

This would make a beautiful Quilt of Valor. I love sampler quilts.

Great block! It resembles Barbara Brackman's 1204b, Magic trianles.

Kathy - wait til you see the quilt Janice L sent me. She's already completed an HST quilt just like the sampler we're working on - all in the patriotics from our store. It's amazing!! I'm going to share it at the end of the challenge.

I was just scanning through the comments and decided to share what I am doing. I made all the 1/2 sq. blocks in the beginning with one each of the 2 color ways jelly rolls. It has been such fun to just look in my box of squares and choose the ones I want. Will need to cut some more soon to do more blocks but from the beginning this has made each week really easy and fun.
