More Striped Center Diamond Tops

I said I went a little crazy with my striped fabrics by making tops with the center diamond panel.  Some of the center panels don’t look like they are striped, but those are tone on tone fabric and the camera had a hard time seeing the stripes.  Those pictures tell me that even using a plain fabric for the center panel would still make a very cute quilt.  What I forgot to say in my previous post is that to get the stripes on the diagonal, the rectangle needs to be cut on the diagonal also, and that is where the bias comes into play.  As you can see in the pics, I didn’t worry about matching stripes.
