Almost all of those 425 triangles were sewn into 13 of my what I think of as Broken Dishes Star blocks.
It was an evening of a lot of chain sewing, followed by lots of pressing, followed by more chain sewing as the triangles became half square triangles, which were dealt like cards into 13 piles of half light-medium and half light-dark squares ... which finally became blocks.
While all this chain sewing and marathon pressing was going on, I watched some episodes from last season's Orphan Black in preparation for the new season which starts tonight. I'm not a Sci-Fi fan, but I really like this show about a group of clones who discover each other and their history.
Dealing with all those triangles was less tedious as I stitched along with Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Helena, Beth and the others (all played by one talented actress).
The thirteen blocks on the left in an on-point orientation are the result of last night's effort. The eight on the right are the blocks I made a couple years ago as part of the rainbow scrap challenge.
This morning, I couldn't resist pulling out the stack of 84 blocks in 4 color groups and putting some of them up on the wall to see them all together.
Now, all the purple blocks for my on-going Rainbow Scraps Challenge projects are done, though, I have a couple of ideas ... if I don't run out of month.
To see more scrappy purple projects, check out the links at Scrap-happy Saturday.
Since I will likely be enjoying these blocks on my design wall for a few days, I'll also be linking this post to Judy's Design Wall Monday.
