Spikes & Diamonds was born from the idea to design a block with triangles that cross over the imaginary middle line and thus bring the common triangle quilt block to a new and modern interpretation. The small and big, slightly wonky and randomly arranged triangles now sometimes intersect like teeth on a zipper. But don't be fooled, they can also work very well in harmony and build beautiful diamond chains.


This pattern includes the Spikes & Diamonds template in two versions: Normal and mirrored. Both include cutting information for additional guidance.

From these, you can build the three layouts: "Spikes", "Half-Diamonds", and "Full-Diamonds".

Also included are suggested block grids for four quilt sizes: Baby, Throw, Twin, and Queen.

There are mock-ups, and layout diagrams for the three layout options: "Spikes", "Half-Diamonds", and "Diamonds" each shown in a throw-size version.

Coloring sheets are available for on-paper and computer coloring in two styles each for all layout options: A throw size and a queen size that also includes markings for all smaller sizes.

Skill Level Intermediate | The blocks in this template are sewn with the technique called foundation paper piecing (FPP). Basic knowledge of this method and basic quilting techniques is assumed. Because of the necessity to match more points the Half-Diamond versions is more challenging, followed by Full-Diamonds. Spikes might also be attempted by a very confident beginner.
