How to Create a Paper Diamond Pattern

Instructions for Quilting a Paper Diamond Piece Pattern

  1. For Fussing Cutting: Trace your diamond onto your cardstock

  2. Use your ruler for your seam allowance.

  3. Use paper scissors to cut around the edge and a craft knife to cut down the center.

  4. Use your template to find the design you want to use on your fabric.

  5. Use your pencil to make registration marks on your template so you can line it up each time.

  6. Use your water soluable pen to trace your template.

  7. Cut the fabric with your fabric scissors

  8. After you have cut your pieces you can glue them to your paper shapes using your glue pen.

    Tip: make sure your fabric has a little bit of tension but do not make it tight.

  9. Make sure your paper shapes line up and then put them together with the patterns facing each other.

  10. Insert your thread from your seam allowance up.

  11. Stitch three stitches in place right at the tip.

  12. Continue to stitch along the edges with stitches between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch apart.

    Tip: Do not go through the paper.

  13. Add three stitches in place at the end of your seam, and ring it underneath the seam allowance and cut the thread to bury it.

  14. Add a third diamond to create a half star, and create two half stars.

  15. Place your two half stars right side together and stitch them together using the same method as above, starting in the middle.

  16. Be sure to tuck in your dog ears at the points of your stars before you applique it down.
