Getting the correct alignment when piecing diamonds can be rough going, but Julie of Jaybird Quilts, came up with a solution. It’s a special ruler she designed and brought to market – the Sidekick. Incidentally, it’s a sidekick to her earlier ruler, the Hex n More. Her fans love ‘em both.

Learn how to use the Sidekick; get her tutorial. Also check out three free quilt patterns (Giggles, Seaside and Rock Candy), all made with a Sidekick ruler.

Note: The patterns are at the end of the post.

Editor’s note 2/23/2014: Sorry, I messed up. These are NOT free patterns, they are available to buy from selected online and brick and mortar stores.

    Not sure why you are saying those are free patterns.
