i used diamonds in the second block for April too , i just couldn't come up with a "Modern " Hexi design. This is very imaginative

THANK YOU for your idea!!! I didn't care for the hex's either... so I haven't done my blocks for April yet. I will try your idea - as the geometric shape matches the other stuff we've done much better. Where did you come up with the diamond shape tho? Did you just make it up yourself?? ~pris

I bought the precut diamonds at the quilt shop - bought two different sizes, but only used one.

Yay -- another great block! I, too, have been struggling with the decision. Finally started my first block -- a combination of hexies and triangles. Thanks for sharing -- can't wait for your next "hexie" block!
