Okay, so I want to make a quilt for a friend of mine (and hopefully it won't be like the last quilt where the friendship falls apart right after the quilt is finished) and out of all the ideas I came up with this is the one I like the most. And sorry for the weird angles of the designs...I can only do so much on Paint and Kodak EasyShare.

Quilt block (without color)

Full quilt design without color

Full quilt with color (this might not be the final result)

I'm a little scared about working with this design because I've never worked with diamonds so I don't know how to piece them together or how difficult it will be to piece them together in this fashion (?). And I still got to work out the specifics like how big the quilt is going to be (I know its going to have to be wider than my last quilt), how big I have to cut out each piece, how much fabric I need, etc.

That will be an awesome quilt. Are you going to make it in black and purple or was that just the colors you used to show us? Those colors are my cousins wedding colors to the T. I think that would be a great color scheme. :D

Purple and black was the one I liked the most. I tried it with red/black, hot pink/black, and light blue/black and they were nice, but didn't quite have the same appeal as purple and black did. The color scheme might change, but its highly unlikely that it will unless I find an even better color scheme or something that suits Deni's style a little better (I know she likes black. Purple I'm not 100% positive about, but I got a feeling she does.)

I love the colors and the design, the purple just seems to float in the air. Please post pictures when it is completed.

there are lots of ways to make those diamonds that don't have to be scary. the best way would be to paper piece them. when using diamond and triangular pieces, precise cutting and seam width are critical. paper piecing eliminates almost all the worry.

That's going to be a gorgeous quilt flying_v! I love the purple and black. So vibrant.
The last time I did a quilt that had diamond shapes like yours ("storm at sea") I did the diamond blocks using paper piecing. It was a breeze that way. Sharp points and an accurate size each and every time. Good luck! :)
