Tutorial of Diamond Chains


How to make a diamond chain in a square block.
 From the diamond fabric cut one strip 1 3/4" x width of fabric and from the background fabric cut two strips 2" x width of fabric.  The diamond chain is the center strip and the outside strips are the backgroundSew the diamond fabric between the background fabric. Press toward center.


  Cut five 1 3/4" sections at a 45 degree angle as shown.

Sew sections together to make a diamond chain. 
 Match and pin each seam.

To each end of diamond strip sew a 2" x 3" background.

On each side of the diamond chain trim 1/4" from diamond sides.

Trim each end of the diamond chain 1/4" from the tips of the diamonds.  Trim at a 90 degree angle.

This is a diamond strip that can be placed between
 two triangle units to make a square.

  2. I am working on making the Midnight Star quilt from the Star Struck quilt book. But I have encountered a pattern error. The instructions say to cut from Darkest to Lightest Red 4 strips, 6 strips, 10 and 12 (i believe). Thus making the darkest color B. But that should be reversed. The lightest color should be B and only have 4 strips cut out of it.
    Also it calls for the strips of gray that make up the center star and the diamonds that make up the side stars to be the same gray, which clearly isn't the case in the example picture. You need two shades of gray, not one. Please let me know if I am completely wrong.
    Thanks, Laura

  7. Yes it is possible to retrieve your stolen bitcoins. I never believed in bitcoin recovery because I was made to understand that it is not possible. But sometime in February I fell for a binary options scam which promised a higher return and I lost close to $75,000. I read an article on here (reddit) as regards to a recovery expert and genius so I reached out to Cryptorefunder360, and to my surprise I got all bitcoins recovered within 42hours frame. I don’t know if I’m allowed to share the links on here but you can contact him if you are finding it very difficult to withdraw your funds at jeansonjamesancheta7@gmail.com or text him on WhatsApp +1 (559) 851-5537.
