Diamond Divas Series Resources

Piece Plan

Elizabeth Piece Plan (by Section)

This document provides a step-by-step guide to help you piece “Elizabeth”, the Princess Cut Diamond quilt pattern..

Purchase Fat-Quarter Bundles for the Diamond Divas Series.

I designed the Diamond Divas Series specifically with Painter’s Palette solids in mind (by Paintbrush Studio Fabrics). If your local quilt shop does not carry Paintbrush Studio solids, you can purchase fabric bundles especially created for each Diamond Diva pattern.

Individual quiltmakers can purchase the bundles directly from eQuilter.com. You can enter “Kinman” in the search field to find my patterns and all the fabric.

I have designed the Diamond Divas Series specifically with Painter’s Palette (by Paintbrush Studio) solids in mind. However, if your local shop does not carry Paintbrush Studio’s solids, but carries Moda Fabrics’ Bella Solids, Hoffman’s 1895 Bali Batiks, or Maywood Studio’s Shadow Play, or Kona Cotton Solids, I have created a cross-reference for every color used in each of the 4 Elizabeth colorways.
