- Start with a 9“ x 10“ piece of fabric. This is perfect for a 1/4 yard increments. I used V and Co Ombre that has been in my stash for awhile.
- Starch the fabric to make sure that the bias of the diamonds don’t distort too much when handled them later on.
- Place the fabric right side down on the FabricGrip Mat, so that the pen could mark the backside of the fabric.\\
- Make sure to firmly place the fabric down and removed any bubbles, so that the grip can keep the fabric in place as the rotary cutter and pen passed over it.
- Peel away the negative space.
- Carefully lift up the diamonds with the Cricut spatula and peel away gently from the mat. Since the fabric is starched, handle with care but don’t worry too much about stretching them.
Look at those twirled seams on the back! Colour me pleased.
I arranged these tumbling blocks into a six-pointed star shape. I backstitched at every point, this made for very secure and precise points. You can cut your own 1″ finished 60° diamonds with your Cricut Maker here!
