Cutting Diamonds
Diagram I

For Kaleidoscope design: Make a diamond shaped plastic template including seam line. (See Diagram II.) With right side of fabric up select a motif and center the template on top of it (ignore grain line). Trace an outline of the motif directly onto the plastic using a marking tool of your choice. Mark the fabric around the template and cut it out. Using guidelines drawn on the template, mark and cut out 23 more identical pieces. Erase guidelines if you are making more than one block. Trace new guidelines for each motif.
