I created this block one night on a whim and I loved it so much I just had to share it. This simple block was a lot of fun to make and the possibilities of color for each gem are endless! You can turn your blocks into a small wallhanging or a a full size quilt. The pattern comes with two different size blocks (6" and 8" finished) for you to choose from to create and use in any layout your heart desires. Of course, feel free to size the block up or down as you desire for any application to any project you're working on.

*Please note that this pattern does not include instructions on how to make a quilt top.

Instructions on foundation paper piecing are not included in this pattern but there are many resources online. Visit my Pinterest page here to see a few resources I've pinned to help get you started:

Enjoy and remember...a diamond is a girl's best friend!

Pattern prints perfectly! I love that it came in a 6" and 8" finished. Easy to follow paper piecing instructions and I love how it turned out!

Cute! Created one 8-inch block with gem in shades of yellow and dark green background for a 60th anniversary gift. Was my very first FPP block so my points were not even close to perfect but pretty good for first try.

I saw this on Instagram & knew I had to have it. I have never worked with a paper piece quilting block before, but this had to be the one I start with! I looked up instructions on how to paper-piece online and along with this handy block pattern in two sizes, got a few gorgeous gems! Wonderful seller. Thanks a bunch!

Love this pattern. So simple but so gorgeous when it's done. I used it to add to a traveling quilt bee. (The right half came to me, I added the gems and sewing machine.) I will definitely make more of these. I'm already planning a mini quilt of all gems. 💕
