For this diamond mix, I copied a diamond shape from one of the EQ layouts (Stars – 1 I think) and used that on a custom quilt.  Then I drew a block with a narrow frame and merged the ‘Sixteen Points Frame’ and ‘Economy’ blocks with my frame.  I also drew a quarter of the ‘Sixteen Points Frame’ as a separate block to flank the largest new block.

For the background, I chose a fabric with many colors and tried to pick solids to carry the same colors through all the blocks.  I also used my simple frame block ‘empty’ so the background shows through. This quilt would have a totally different feel if another fabric is used.
