Pattern Description:

Toddlers love stacking blocks. I remember those wooden blocks we had when I was young and that were painted with different colors on each face. That has inspired me a playmat. It consists of 3 diamonds in contrasting and cheerful colors joined together to form an hexagonal quilt. Each diamond represents a face to give the illusion of a cube.

This pattern consists in an hexagonal quilt formed by 3 diamonds. Each one is assembled in a log cabin fashion (courthouse steps variation) alternating between solid color and coordinating print fabric strips. This is to accentuate the three-dimensionality. Then the diamonds are assembled together using a Y-seam.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 36" x 42"


  • Quilting cotton fabrics (see picture for fabric requirements)
  • Batting
  • Thread
  • Rotary cutter
  • Ruler (with a 60-degree angle line) and mat
