Here's how to make the diamond unit with our templates.
METHOD NO. 1
METHOD NO. 2
Fold fabric in half and put top edge of tape against the fold. Cut the remaining sides to make a diamond. All four sides will be on the bias.
Use this method for cutting stripes, either way:
METHOD NO. 3
1. Cut strips a scant 3 1/4 inches for C #16, and 4 1/16 inches for D #22. Use template C #16 or D #22 to establish the correct angle.
2. Cut parallelograms the same width as the strip.
3. Use template C #16 or D #22 to create precision corners for piecing triangles cut with template C #17 or D #23 to complete the rectangular Storm at Sea unit.
