“Diagonal Delight” with Madame Samm!

Hi everyone!
Tomorrow I’ll be guest blogging over at Madame Samm’s.  She has been featuring a series of guest bloggers over that past month, each with their own unique block design.  Over the past year I have been experimenting with blocks that interlock – where one block seems to flow into the other in a seamless way – and this block is no exception.

Introducing “Diagonal Delight”…

On her own she doesn’t look like much, but look what she can do when multiplied…

Diagonal Delight Quilt A

Diagonal Delight Quilt B

Diagonal Delight Quilt C

Diagonal Delight Quilt D

 If you are looking for a tutorial to make this block, hop on over to Madame Samm’s

Now for the giveaway – this one is easy.  I’ll be giving away three of my patterns that exemplify this interlocking block idea:  Garden Paths, Bedazzled, and Beribboned.  All you have to do is follow (if you don’t already) and leave a comment on this post telling me which of the above designs is your favorite. 

That is it!  Don’t forget to leave me a way to contact you should you win!

Deadline is a little longer this time – Thursday, December 1st at midnight.

Happy sewing!

  30. I have to say A is my fav

  31. I like Quilt B the best. Gorgeous!

  32. So many beautiful quilts! Hard to decide…..hmmmmm…..Think I like the quilt Beribboned best. How do you become a follower? I´ll look in on your blog every day, is that enough?

  33. Amanda, your block and patterns are amazing. I love them all, but I think pattern A was the one that kept drawing me back. Will look forward to following you now that I've met you through Madame Samm. Thanks for sharing!

  34. I believe Block A is my favorite, but I like C 's design too, robots looking…great block to play with too.

  36. Love this block! As for the layouts, I think it's a tie between A and D.

  37. Im a follower…Garden Paths is my favorite! Thx.

  38. What a neat concept! I think A captures my eye the most.

  39. Love the post and block – I like the B layout!
    love the garden path quilt pattern! thanks!

  40. What talent – what an imagination! I love Beribboned and I follow you! Thanks.

    Thanks for the chance to win!


  42. I think your quilt patterns are GREAT! and should I be chosen to win one of them, I'd pick beribboned. Thanks and I just signed up to be a follower!

  43. I like A the best followed with B. However all are ver nice and you could make all three with one pattern. BTW I love your Garden Paths pattern. I have become a follower. Thanks

  44. Hi Amanda thank you so much for your block…I love it. Well I really like all 3 but I guess my first like would be garden paths then beribboned …thanks so much again for the tutorial. Happy Holidays.

  45. Your quilt patterns are amazing. I love the Garden Paths pattern. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  46. Oh wow, too hard to choose. I like quilt that have symmetry, so A is out. I like B but I think I like D better with the sashing it breaks up the corner stones of 4patches, but I also think C is really cool too! Hmmmmm C or D. If I were to sit down right now and make one I would make…………..C!

  47. I love the simplicity of Layout A – but the possibilities are pretty mind boggling. I do a ton of Linus quilts and love to use new patterns, new layouts, and new fabrics – this pattern sure fits my needs! Gorgeous ideas!

  48. Love the patterns! I am thinking of doing a quilt with this diagonal block, great options. The last one, D with the sashing for sure. Thanks for the chance at winning.

  49. I love the block and I HAD to choose just one quilt design, I would choose A.

  52. I love your tutorial, can't wait to get home from work so I can add it to the Nov Block Sampler I am making from all this month's tuts. I really also like your Bedazzled pattern. Thanks for having a give away. 🙂

  53. I like the A for its unique look. They are all pretty and it was a hard decision. Thanks for sharing.

  54. I love view A. This is a great way for me to use those 2.5" squares I was collecting for a Tokyo Subway quilt I'll never actually piece. Thanks.

  55. Of this group, I think I like "D" the best, but of all of your patterns, Garden Paths is my fav!! Ooooh, I hope I can win! Your tutorial at SWQ is super!!

  56. Great tutorial–love Diagonal Delight Quilt A!

  57. Hi Amanda! My favorite pattern is "C."
    I like the layout, with the 16-patches being kind of scrappy. I also like pattern A for it being so different from anything I've ever seen before! Very nice!


  58. Love all the designs but my favorite is A. I'm a follower and would love to win your interlocking block patterns! Thanks!

  61. All of your patterns are *always* gorgeous, but I love the Garden Paths one the best– and I also love the name!! 🙂 Or, did you mean, which of the layouts for the Diagonal Delight block do we like the best?… If so, then I really LOVE the first one- A – it looks like one of those jeweled sun catchers hanging in the wind– definitely on my "to-do" list!! Love it! 🙂

  62. Great block. I like quilt A. And I am a follower.

  63. If I had to I'd follow you to the moon!! I love following you around…I learn so much and it often leads me to places I've never visited before. Love opening my email each day and having a post from you!!! Starts my morning off just right, always wonderful inspiration and some fun.
    I vote for A…I was leaning towards D…but something about the simplicity of A… I just want to "follow" that diagonal line right off into la la land!!

  98. Thanks for a great tutorial – your quilts are an inspiration! My favourite is Garden Paths!

  99. Your patterns are beautiful. Hard to pick just one, but I like "B" the best. Thanks for sharing and having this giveaway.

  100. What a versatile block, Amanda. #C is my favorite. I will be looking around your blog for other design ideas. Great work!

  101. I'm following your blog and love version b.

  102. What do you mean pick one. They are all great. OK, #1. There. Love all your patterns. Thanks for sharing. It is awesome that you can make the blocks, and then play with the layout.

  103. Very difficult! But you said pick one…So the first one I like of the entire likeable patterns is:
    Diagonal Delight Quilt B.
    I already follow you!

  104. What a great block! I love the "A" lay out. I'll have to try this one!

  105. Very difficult to choose!! I like them all, but C is my favorite, followed closely by A. Love the way one block can be used in so many different ways to produce such varied patterns!! Love your patterns, would love to be the winner!!

  106. Wow, Amanda! Love them all, but I think C would be my favorite for today. I like the randomness of the blocks rather than having them on the same plane. Your designs are never boring, I have to say! Thanks for the opportunity.

  107. I like all of them, but I think B is my favorite!

  108. Hard to choose, but Garden Paths is my favorite. I'm a follower. Thanks for the chance to win.

  109. Dear Amanda
    I really love your block designs. Each one is tempting to try. I really love them all. Glad that you were a guest at Mdm. Samm's. I have to say I decided to follow your blog now that I saw your great designs. Thanks for sharing.

  110. Love this block design after seeing what it can do. The C design is my favorite. I am a follower.

  111. I like A the best. It looks very modern!

  112. Thanks for a great tutorial! I made my first block tonight.. I am adding it to the Block Party Sampler from the Nov Tutorials. 🙂 I plan to make this one again. Thanks again.. If I had to pick a design..I like D. You can see my posting at http://www.quiltmonstercloset.com 🙂 Take Care and Congrats on a great TUT!

  113. I really like this Diagonal Delight pattern. It can look similar to Burgoyne Surrounded, which has always been one I am drawn to. I also find the layout A to be very intriguing. Great patterns! If I had to choose just one of your new patterns, I guess it would be Bedazzled. It has wonderful movement,and the twisted ribbon design is great.
    Thanks for doing this tute!

  120. I like designs A & D. I'm a follower. Thanks for the tutorial & the giveaway!

  121. Love the idea of interlocking blocks. What you have done also, I think, would work well done in scrappy manner (tho I like the coordinated stuff you illustrate better). I would definitely try these (and would love to actually win a pattern) !!

  127. I like B,C,& D but I looooove A!


  128. Love quilt A, with quilt B a close second. This may be my next quilt, for me, it is so pretty. Am working on my FIRST quilt right now, if you don't count 9 "rag" quilts this year. My daughter chose your pattern Portraits of my Garden. It is going very nicely! sharonbrown.99@comcast.net
