Mary from Mary Quilts suggests, to create the impression that the quilt is pieced from diamonds – fabric placement is key.

Instead of focusing on repetition, center your attention on other elements like color, a fantastic way to modernize a traditional pattern. Half rectangles come together to form diamonds for the star. Clean lines, simple design. For a scrappy look, use different fabrics for the star’s points. Quilt feathers tie the star together, a half triangle border provides the frame.
