    Thanks. I'll have to think on that idea.

    Actually MTS, that wasn't one I used - I got some ideas from a ruler ad and figured it from there! Will have to see if I kept the reference. Name:  HexDraw0001.jpg

    I started to make a sort of tutorial for myself on doing hex's and octa's. It's Word document and I'd be happy to e-mail you a copy if it would help! It just makes it so easy. Just shoot me a PM.

    I really want to do a TBlocks but the original way, not with the seam like Marti Michell does.

    There's a quilt on Clotilde that looks like what you want. Check it out. It's called "Shadow Play". Here's the link:

    I think this would work. Hope you understand the graphic. If not I'll see what
    I can do tomorrow. My bed is calling me.

    That looks like it's also constructed using S-in-a-S blocks (as is Easy Peezy's drawing). Probably even more patterns out there showing the same method.

    If someone were going to do the faux TB pattern, it's certainly seems the easiest way to go - so many construction possibilities, and easily adjustable to any size. Also, the setting - straight or on-point - allows for even more variations.

    I thought I saw a reference to Jaybird on your thread, so I just included the link.
    And I agree about doing it the original way - there is just something aesthetically pleasing about those 60 diamonds!

    Link? Just curious.

    I did get that you wanted to do it with HST's - but there is a difference between HST patches and HST blocks.
    Which is why I suggested the S-in-a-S block.
    It was hard to tell from your picture where the seam lines were, and if the square was one piece of fabric or seamed.
    Looked like one piece to me.

    At a quick glance, all the references to TB patterns on the Wondercut site use 60 degree triangles. Although, I did see a S-in-a-S block made with HST blocks (with all outside bias edges - yuck).


    Slightly OT, here's an audacious floor treatment (probably not a great suggestion for anyone with balance problems).

    Hi, Easy! How're you doing? Am I right to assume this design uses HST's, also? Looks very doable. 'Spose you could also use a center square on point and sew the triangles to it. Boy, it would take a lot of accurate sewing!!
