This is the second Halloween Table Quilt I have made. This one has 8 sides. These are so quick to make, taking only a couple of hours from cutting the strips to the finished flimsy stage. The angle for this 8-sided quilt is 45 degrees.Getting the pieces cut for this quilt was a little harder than cutting the 60 degree angle for the Hexagon quilt. I don't have a proper 45 degree ruler so I had to improvise. I do have a 45 degree diamond shaped ruler that I used to line up my long ruler. The edges on my diamond ruler are not clean and this resulted in a variation in the width of the finished cut pieces.
I would definitely recommend purchasing a proper 45 degree ruler if you plan on making one of these 8-sided quilts.
