So, I started with this fabric cut into eight repeats (repeat was 12").
Then, all the pieces were cut and sewn into octagons. I arranged on the design wall.
Twenty six photos and tries later, I had this.
Then, I had piles of 8 squares. They went into two piles of 4. They were cut opposite each other. These pile of 4 triangles were arranged into a square, and I used painters tape on the back to hold them together to prevent a matching nightmare. These taped squares were auditioned in the spaces left between octagons. I got real excited at this point.
|Groups of triangle squares for filling in. Pretty cool, huh?|
