6 in 15

 Sticking to my guns to get this quilt done, 
I did 6 diamonds in 15 minutes...
 Grab, sew, any which way
 Make them larger than your paper if you try this way, 
and use a small stitch so the paper falls away easily.
 Press, Trim, Walla!
My wall is filling up with diamond confetti! 
I will keep sewing them until I have a whole lot of them... Then play later.

Let's see your 15 minutes.

So V, when you have a stack of uncut-yardage infront of you, how do you start to cut it up to get all your funky pieces for this kind of block?

Paper pieceing is easy, I use old phone books! Paper is very thin and tears away beautifully.

wow! these are lovely!! but i was a little confused at first...
in the UK paperpiecing is where you wrap fabric round a template and then sew to the next piece - all by hand.
so we'd call this foundation piecing - where you stitch on to a base layer of thin paper or fabric. ah, sorry i had to realase the peddant in me!!
