Purchased the pattern and was very disappointed. I thought that it had a technique for placing diamonds in the strips.I was quite excited to learn a clever new way to sew whole diamonds into the the strips. Not at all what I was expecting. It is really just triangles sewn together to form diamonds. I didn't need to pay to know how to do that.

I'm sorry you were disappointed. You are right that while it isn't a diamond in one piece, it is a diamond from two pieces with a 3-D effect. Both quilts are hanging in quilt shops and have received many compliments. What I am told is they love the 3 dimensional effect of the diamond and how easy it is to make the quilt. I always strive for easy. Thank you though for your input.
