My photography skills are not the best, but I hope you can see the final design I chose is an octogon. From the moment I started playing around with layout options, my motifs were screaming, "We want to be an octogon!!" With the new skills and confidence I gained from this adventure I was able to make half-granny triangles and created trapezoids to fill the spaces needed to make the outside borders.
Thanks to Bernat, the admins, Shandeh, and all those who participated in the forum. Your help and expertise were amazing.
