    WOW WOW WOW!!!! I had to go back and look at the first one again - they are gorgeous! I had the very same fabric only with a blue background - but used it for kids pillowcases. You are truly inspiring :D

    I thought I did as well Aunt Bea - but you know I think it depends on the fabric print being used. This is a very "busy" colourful fabric, which helped the setting squares to blend the octagons together so's they didn't have such a defined line as sometimes happens with octagons.
    I prefer making the hexagons - it's lots quicker :lol: And I like playing with cubes which you can't do with the octagons - and you cannot turn the triangles around either of course - however I will do another one with octos when I find the right fabric.
    And I have enough of this particular fabric to make a hexagon one as well later on ...
