    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.

    So funny...as I began to read your comment, I was all ready to reply about the corners, but I'm glad you saw it. Gotta tell you, if there is an easy way to get the result, I'll generally go that way. I haven't mitered a border since I figured out I could use the HST's, unless of course it's a stripe or something.

    I might actually try to do some attic windows that way. I learn something new every day.

    I put a picture on today of Beyond the Rain, that has the attic windows done with the HST's :)

    All of your quilts are very interesting and have a lot of 'movement'. You have a great eye for color and placement too. Thanks for sharing your work.
