    Interesting. Usually I hear that it's the Y-seams that make people wary about trying it with diamonds.

    Have you ever tried the Quiltsmart LS? No bias. No small diamonds. Easy, easy!!
    Yeah, it's another expense, but the results are dynamite.
    And you can even avoid the Y-seams, if you must, when sewing the sections together.

    The one with the plain triangle in the corners will give you a single direction because there is only one "ladder." The other one will give you movement in both direction and a much more interesting secondary pattern. I believe the second one is more traditional.

    Brilliant!

    Did you come up with that yourself?
    I like to give credit.

    Thanks! I made this is a Karen Combs Illusions class. She taught us how to draw the cubes and we picked our own blocks to draft on graph paper. I ended up doing 12 different blocks to make an Illusions sampler. It was alot of fun.
