I used Blitzen Moda fabric by Basic Grey, a Sidekick ruler and a 2 1/2 inch diamond stripper (Marti Michell). I liked the diamond stripper for the trimmed points, made it really easy to line up the seams. I really liked the Sidekick because it gave me a good visual for lining up the fabric just right. Here are a few pics, partly pieced and finished. The red arrow in the first pic points to the diamond stripper template.
There is a pattern available - Rock Candy by Jaybird Quilts, but given the experience I have had of using the diamonds with triangles, I made it without the pattern.
