    I wanted to use a group of the stacked triangles that result from the first 45 degree cut on a row of fabric, stacked for octagons. While trying to decide if I should set them on white or black, it occured to me to set them on both :) By not putting them in each square, I think it gives a scattered look. I bordered two sides of each pinwheel, so they would float in the block and the "twins" could come together at the edge of the blocks.

    Thanks so much! I make a lot of quilt tops with stacks in them, so I have a lot of leftovers of stacked fabrics.

    Your mitered border is awesome (I still haven't mastered Y seams...) Love your pattern and a great use for scrap pieces. Oh. I just realized you did it using HST's. What a cool way to do it.
