lace and the miter square

while fiddling around with a section of our penelope pattern, we ended up making a little swatch that turned out to be a lace version of the miter square.  we’ve seen striped miter squares before but haven’t as yet come across a lacy concoction. . . it makes a nice little coaster by itself, and if ya whipped up a whole bunch, you might just end up with a really cool blanket!’
