English Paper Piecing, Diamonds

Happy Tuesday! I've been paper piecing some 8-point diamonds recently, which I've been itching to start playing with since they arrived at Sew and Quilt last month, but had to hold the plans until I finished off my other quilt ;) These are the 3" size - so they're big, and because they only have four sides they are much quicker to whip up than hexies, perfect!
This time I was completely inspired by this quilt I pinned on Pinterest a while back, I really love the pink background and bright feedsack prints, so pretty. 
So, that's the starting point - let's see where I'll end up :) xo
