392165 - Explosion of Diamonds - Bed sizes twin through king

SKU: RGR165 $12.00
This is a pattern in "The Perfectly Frugal Series", so named because of the fabric savings that can be achieved. This pattern shows all corner triangles being made with both the new “Perfect Corner Ruler™" and the legacy “Sew & Flip” techniques. Either technique can be used, however, the Perfect Corner Ruler™’s provides superior results and saves from ⅞ yard to 1⅛ yards depending upon which of the four bed sizes of quilt you make.

There are a variety of different corner triangle applications used to achieve the look of this quilt: Flying Geese; Star Points; Square-in-a-Square; Two Color Squares; replacing opposite corners in the same fabric with different fabrics; as well as to make Half Square Triangles to assure that all of the blocks’ corner triangles align better. All four bed size layouts are included and diagrammed. There are also detailed instructions on attaching borders.

If you are using the “Sew & Flip” technique, the Perfect Corner Ruler™ is not used. If you use the technique using the Perfect Corner Ruler™, the tool is required and you will achieve the fabric savings as well as getting excellent results with blocks containing sharp points and the straight lines that make this pattern a hit.

Techniques: Piecing, Corner Triangles [Flying Geese; Star Points; Square-in-a-Square; Two Color Squares; replacing opposite corners in the same fabric with different fabrics; as well as to make Half Square Triangles to assure that all of the blocks’ corner triangles align better].

Special Tools: Recommended The Perfect Corner Ruler – not required if using the “Sew & Flip” technique
