    That's a beautiful quilt!

    I have seen a few others done in the similar style and been quite attracted to the look. I think it was in the QB Gallery. Not sure!

    I don't have a pattern, though you could easily make your own template piece.
    The diamond is just the two outside/opposite points of the hexie.

    there are actually two border pieces ... the diamond and the triangle piece where the fence pieces meet and turn.

    That is probably the prettiest GFG I've ever seen. I love the "fence" and I love the way she fussy cut the hexies. The "fence" is also fussy cut!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I found a few references

    http://larajanepark.blogspot.com/201...l#.UMSrW3drREM - scroll down quite a bit. Doesn't say how to make it, it's an antique for sale. Just showing that this is an older pattern.

    http://amybradleydesigns.blogspot.co...r-absence.html - her grandmother made one and now she's making a GFG - perhaps also with a fence. Might be worth it to ask her.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...ectorid=229466 - You can get this one on E-Bay

    http://www.bharattextile.com/quilt/index.php - ahhh ... some history. This might help - read the description under the picture.

    .....you are so correct!
    (and could be made from the original hexie too!)

    ( ........... of course, being such a young thing, you had to prove it with your keen eyesight! )

    I never really cared for GFG that much, but I love this variation. Thanks for posting it.

    I have always heard of the diamonds refered to as "connectors". Fence makes it much more interesting. That is a lovely quilt. If you google GFG you will likely come up with lots of tutes. I have seen the diamonds and hexagon pattern on some site, but can't seem to find it now. Good luck with your search.
