    I know what you mean. Do you have a quick way of doing half triangles?

    By the way that looks great, can't wait to see it finished.

    thanks, all, very much. :mrgreen:

    it's my own design. for all i know, there's a block just like it out there somewhere, but since i'm making it up as i go along i hope i'm correct in claiming that it's an original.

    the fabrics are from Michael Miller Fairy Frost line.

    i've named it Mineral Rights because the two prints on black are Copper and Gold.

    320 HSTs so far. (not counting the ones in the scrap drawer or land fill. :lol: )

    it'll be just over 5' x 5' when i've done the center. haven't yet decided what do do beyond that. it'll come to me by the time i need an idea. i hope. :lol:

    That is gorgeous. I love the way the copper and gold are offset by the black and white.

    Patrice, When we design something as we go and call it ours what IF there is another one just like it somewhere? Can we get in trouble? You know that copywright stuff?? By the way I LOVE your quilt.

    the first designer would have to prove in a court of law that there's no way another person could possibly have come up with the design on their own. or that a published version of the design was so readily available that i would've found it with little effort.

    looks too much like too many blocks in the public domain for me to worry about any of that.
