Create Diamond Piece
Lay out three long strips of fabric, with the narrow one in the middle (i.e. the 1.75" wide strip
is in the middle). Sew the three strips together, right sides together. Press
seams away from center strip. Trim ends straight, using sewing ruler or quilter's square.
Cut sewn piece into 1.75" wide strips. You should have a 10 strips. This is more than you
will need, but allows for "errors".
Next, take your 7 best strips of each set and lay them out diagonally, next to each other. Rotate which row
is on top (i.e. if dark green is on top for one strip, the one adjacent should have light green on top).
Sew the strips
together right sides together. Trim off points. Use a sewing ruler and rotary cutter for best results.
Cut off ends, leaving 4 "diamonds" plus 1/4" all the way around. See photos below.
Your diamond piece should measure approzimately 2" x 7". Don't worry if your piece is not this exact size, however. Other pieces will be added and the entire piece will be trimmed to a final size later.
Measure across the width of the diamond strip; it should measure approximately 2". Cut two pieces of border fabric 1" x 2" (or the width you need). Stitch a brown strip to each end of the diamond strip. Press seams toward outer edge. Cut two pieces of border fabric 1" x 7.5" and stitch them to the two long sides of the diamond strip. Press seams toward outer edge.
Trim the bordered diamond strip so that its finished size is 2.5" x 7.5".
