    Actually bobbie the square is one size. I used the 24 inch square and added borders. (Sorry for the delay in answering. Life got in the way)

    you've completely lost me. A carpenter's wheel is 64 squares, most of which are half square triangles. Why would there be "in-set" squares?

    Someone please explain to me what's hard about 8 rows of 8 squares? Even if most of the squares are HST.

    Beautiful!!!

    As to why this quilt is usually so hard - the original version isn't made with squares and HST. Google the original pattern and you'll understand.

    Ooh-love your fabrics-beautiful!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Okay, so the original was diamonds instead of HST?

    Thanks. This is the only pattern I've seen in the last 30 or so years.
