Tutorial :: Diamond Illusion Quilt Block

January 2nd already, I truly cannot believe it!    The last few months have been full of family time and it has really been nice.

I hope to get back in the swing of things and I thought I’d kick the year off with a new tutorial.

Several had questioned how this quilt was made and eighty years later, here you go!

Update * Here is a great tutorial on creating the square in square blocks.

Please let me know if you have any questions while using it.   Hope your year is off to a good start!
