It worked well and was easy.
Thanks, I've done mitered borders before, I think they are a challenge.

Tartan, thanks for the instructions!! I still can't visualize how it's going to work, but I think if I sew up a few squares, I'll figure it out!! What is that 45* tool called that you have in your picture?

This handy little ruler made by Omnigrid, was gifted to me by a quilter friend about 10 years ago before she died. I don't know if it is still available but I think of her every time I use it.image.jpeg

The blocks are all made the same but you rotate them every other one. Here is the first one with the second block rotated and you can start to see the pattern.image.jpeg
