Diamond Flower Pillow with Pattern

Sorry if you are sick of seeing my attempts at creating a paper pieced pattern, but I promise this is the last time you will have to see this block :)  Well, probably.

I finally got the kinks worked out and was able to make the block look like the idea in my head.  I turned the block into a pillow for my daughter.

She loves that mirror ball print.  I think she would be happy if we could just cover her entire room with it.

And I backed it with this great Ann Kelle ballerina print that I picked up from the Fat Quarter Shop.  She makes the best kids prints.  I love that brunette ballerina with the glasses.  

I thought I would make the pattern available for download in case anyone was interested.

The layout of the blocks should look like this:
I bought an Ann Kelle robot print to make a similar pillow for my son, but he doesn't want a flower so I am hoping to get some more practice creating paper piecing patterns :)

  1. Oh no, you just showed me a robot print that I don't have yet! I have been collecting Robot/space fabrics for like a year now to get the 70 fat quarters I need to make my twins bed quilts. I'm almost there...I need abour 20-ish more. Guess It's time to do some more online shopping! :)

  9. I have never really paper pieced, but I think this block is wonderful! P.S. I'm 40 and I think I'd cover my room in Mirrorball Dots.

  17. thank you for the pattern. I really love paper piecing and my baby girls like to tear away the papers. so it keeps everyone busy and gets them involved. quilting is fun for the whole family. !!
