I have been working hard to get my version of mum's pattern, Diamond Advantage, completed in time for the end of January so I can link it up as my first A Lovely Year of Finishes finish. Doesn't it look great! I am so pleased with how it turned out.
This design is pre-cut friendly with the front using just one jelly roll, a solid, and your sashing fabric. The backing can also be done using one layer cake or yardage. Mine pictured below used yardage of two fabrics to create a checkerboard effect.
