This is called a 1-inch “Diamond” shape collection but the half and quarter diamonds are triangles, so it is more versatile than it sounds.

You can make dozens of Pieced Hexagon designs with this ONE shape collection—and many, many more if you also have the 1-inch Hexagon shape collection. (Video tab)

System Requirements – Windows or Mac with Adobe Reader (not a phone or tablet) and any ordinary color Inkjet printer or all-in-one.

1 inch 60° Diamond + Triangles

This shape collection PDF includes diamonds with 1-inch sides plus the half and quarter diamonds (triangles).

60° shapes are very versatile and are used in many designs, including Flower Power (Millefiori Quilts 3) and Suja Suja Prikkeltje (Millefiori Quilts 4).

Features of the 1-inch Diamonds Shape Collection (PDF)

Diamonds for Millefiori Quilts

Christmas Stars - Millefiori Quilts

I did not create a separate shape collection for Christmas Stars (Millefiori Quilts 1)  but the shapes are available. It only uses two popular shapes, these 1-inch Diamonds 60° and 1-inch Hexagons 60°. The templates in the book are 2.5 cm (0.98 inches) which is very slightly smaller than 1 inch.

Christmas Stars - Millefiori Quilts

Detailed diagrams for assembling the quilt top are in Millefiori Quilts 1.

You might already have the two shape collections you need!

La Creme dela Creme Millefiori Quilts

The same is true for La Creme de la Creme in Millefiori Quilts 1.

La Creme dela Creme Millefiori Quilts detail

You might prefer to make Christmas Stars or La Creme de la Creme with larger or smaller shapes. Any matching Inklingo 60° hexagons and 60° diamonds will work. e.g. 0.75-inch hexagons with 0.75-inch diamonds or 1.5-inch hexagons with 1.5-inch diamonds. Inklingo makes it easy.

Continuous stitching and “circling the intersection” by hand are perfect for these designs.

The brilliance of Willyne’s design is in the way she used the shapes to create interlocking designs. She teaches hand piecing with a running stitch.
It is NOT necessary to use EPP unless that is the method you prefer.

It is much easier to print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo and sew with a running stitch.

Diamonds in Pieced Hexagons

Quilted Coasters made with Diamonds

Use these shapes with any pattern. The one-inch diamond is compatible with Monkey Exercise # 1, but you should use the Suggested Custom Page sizes in the shape collection, instead of the ones in the pattern. (The original layout for diamonds on the Shape Collection # 1 CD was modified for the downloadable version.)

    Making stars with these shapes is easy beyond belief. The stars are perfect every time thanks to the stitching lines and matching points.

  2. Kari L (verified owner)

    I could spend hours (and actually have!) stitching together stars. They go together so easily and the precision that Inklingo has easily translates to your stitching. Awesome!

  3. Kari L (verified owner)

    An easy way to do the 10000 triangle quilt!

  4. Pati (verified owner)

    The 1.0 inch Diamond collection is wonderful. I have used it to make several small quilts (one of which got an award at the show where it was displayed.)
    The stars and blocks and other shapes will lay flat with no problems. Great for machine or hand stitching.
    With the match points and crosshairs at the seam intersections the “Y” seams are not a problem at all.
    A fun, fun collection.
