  1. So do you do all the “filler triangles” and then complete the edge all the way around? It looks really pretty and I’m thinking I might use it when I have my Dutch Roses all together. I’m still making hexies at the moment so it’s still a way off.

    • Yep! You can add this edge to any squares off blanket. – it would look fab on Dutch Rose ☺️❤️
