Say that 3 times really fast !
I just finished my first diamond tufted headboard. My #1 tip: Don’t drill your thumb nail ! I’ve sewn it with the machine, stapled it to a cornice and now drilled it, hazards of the job I suppose.
This one also had a 2” shirred band all the way around the outside.
Traditionally, the diamonds are taller than they are wide, I used 7/8” buttons on this one.

Funky shape and fat cord:
