I had so many bitty scraps in the yellow bin, and threw them over to the machine as I sorted them...
Sew a little piece to another, keep going, until you get some of these...
Oh you'll need more than that to make the large diamond... I used 9 smaller diamonds.
First offset the points by a quarter inch, and sew into three rows.
Some people like to trim little dog ears off points.
Not me, they help me line it all up when sewing the rows together.
I'll show you what I mean...
When you place the rows right sides together to sew the long seam, the points are next to each other.
To place them perfectly fold one seam the wrong way, just for a moment, til the points are directly on top of each other.
Good, hold this in place with your pincer finger grip, and lay in a pin, let the seam flip back over so the points look next to each other again, sew the long seam gently.
These are all bias (stretchy) edges.
And the diamonds are matched perfectly in place when you're done!
