All finished, just need to chuck it in the washer but that will have to wait until I get a new dryer.

@Efemera  That's lovely - and to me it's what patchwork is really all about; using up scraps.

I like the design. Does it have a name?  The red binding was a perfect choice. It looks so cozy.

No I just looked on Pinterest and then made it up.

Whatever its called it is glorious and looks perfect with that Red binding.

Every time I look at these I think, no way could I complete one of these.  They are beautiful and look like there is hours and hours of time in them.  Simply stunning.

@Efemera I may have inquired previously but don't recall a reply if I did. The  brain is currently over everything.

Please be a dear and give us the rudiments again. I think it's coming back to me. Did you sew strips together then cut your wedges? Was it 1½inch strips? Am I thinking of something else? Hmm, that would be good with longer strips. Did you draw the triangle on paper then grab pieces long enough to cover, stitch together then trim? Or did you.....

I'm sure there's more than one way to get to done with this.

@Renegade Sewist theres a diagram in the other thread that explains it a bit better but start with a white strip 11/2” and sew strips either side And then cut your square
