I like this very much, tell us how you calculated your diamonds, please?

Someone was generous enough to share the website: http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/ and so I was able to make diamonds that when pieced together are make the hexigons. The size was 2 1/4" diamonds. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Hi goatroper, I have to be fair and give my DH the credit for finding the incompetech website, but I was the one who posted the site here. LOL You were very creative coming up with the hexagon from the tumbling blocks. I still haven''t decided what I am going to do for my second April block and was looking through the pic's for ideas. I may be copying you...but please take it as a complement, if I do! Beautiful Blocks and an excellent job!

Well thank you to your DH. That site is very helpful in quickly making the correct size of pattern for a variety of shapes. I'm happy to know it is available anytime it is needed. At some point you are going to know exactly what you want to do. Your creativity will strike. Even if you copy the block it is not going to be the exact same. You will work with your fabrics and come up a different twist and look of the idea. Have fun.
