    :-D :-D :-D This is what I have so far and I want to put some waves around the borders. There is a fish I FMQ on the black diamonds around the quilt. Each fish is a diffrent color. So here is a picture of it now and maybe later I'll post again with some waves on the borders. There is a close up of the fish I put on it. I'm kicing myself because I was going ot put a pocket on the back for a cardbord so it would hang flat, but I forgot to. Grr,,, Enjoy it any ways, Huggies, Fay

    My idea of an octagonal shaped quilt

    It looks cute & why can't you add your pocket on the back now just before you add your binding? That's what I did with mine that was that shape.

    I could,, but I birthed it, but I should be able to hand sew one on or just put it on the back of the couch or just lay it on the bed in the middle for show. Thanks for the nice complments, Huggies, Fay

    What a clever idea for fish. I just love what you've done with your cubes.

    Wowzers! I love it. But I really think you should hang it on a wall so you can see the full 3D effect of the cubes. How about making some little corner pockets for the top point and the points either side then inserting two dowel rods in kind of a V shape. You could then hang it from the one hook. If it wouldn't hang striaght, you could put a pocket at each corner then dowels all around like a frame. Hope I've explained that OK. :shock: :lol:

    I love it! I agree with k3n, work on finding ways to hang it. It deserves to be up on a wall where it can be seen well.
